What materials did you use? I was inspired by the torcs made by the Iceni tribe with there beautiful twisted wire detail and wanted to create a bracelet with that same look of strength combined with simple, delicate detail. I have made this bracelet with 6 loop double Viking knit chain, which I have finished with handmade wire caps, the ends of the chain are accented with Rhodonite beads. The large 16mm Rose Quartz bead is encased in a wire spiral. A thick frame wire runs through the centre of the bracelet, which I have finished with a handmade hook clasp and link that I have hammered to add a contrast in textures. The inside diameter is 7" I have oxidised this piece to highlight the detail.

Give that girl a pair of pliers, some wire, and wait for the magic to happen. Abby, this is beautiful, as always!

Saw the pic, awesome work, and I said to myself, this has to be Abby's work, then I looked to the right for the picture and name, and low and behold I was right! Adding a few beads to the classic viking knit makes an amazing looking bracelet!
