Awesome work.... again!!!
TjeCan answered:
Thanks so much! Did you get all unpacked?
Grammy Schmidt asked:
I want to try this. It is fabulous!
TjeCan answered:
Thank you! It was really fun to do. I had to measure and be disciplined in making the frame and the "trellis" for the structure of the bracelet but I just let the beads drop where it felt right. It is so fun when it all comes together!
Linda Correll asked:
love this, where can I find out how to make it?
TjeCan answered:
Hi Linda. If you are used to working with wire, the suggestions I included here should help you get started. If you haven't done much with wire then I suggest that you start with a free tutorial for a wire cuff. There is one at Wickwire jewelry. You can just google it. That is how I started. Once I did Nancy's free tutorial a couple of times then I started to try making my own designsa and that is how I made this one. Please post your results so we can all see it! Thanks for the kudos! I am still not sure if people are going to like my jewelry so it is nice to get posts!
Oceans Gems asked:
I just finished making this cuff without beads,,,, and it looks lovely. I used 14 ga aluminum copper (only because this was a 1st trial) with a 24 gauge dark copper.It's soft, and took me a good 3 hours. Mine is a bit different, but now that I know the structure, I can see making different ones. Thank you TjeCan for posting, and I will wear mine with pride. :) thanks! and good luck!
