Bracelets and more ...


~sold~
These bracelets were made this past week. The top one I am calling a horizontal charm bracelet - there are two of each type of bead but even they are not identical. Of course the messy wire wraps and fabric beads are inspired by Nina Bagley.

This red bracelet is a mix of my paper beads, and fair-trade cinnabar from Nepal. I have aged them all and dipped them in shellac.

This copper set is my favourite. The stones are coffee rock collected on my walks at the Port. the stone fragments have been tumbled and smoothed by the action of the waves (after they broke away from the larger rocks below). I found them quite easy to drill and they are light weight so will be nice to wear.

This weekend I am planning on playing with paper, I have an altered book to finish working in and some ATC ideas. Of course on Sunday I will also have the pleasurable task of choosing a winner of the junk pin I am giving away.

You have been busy my love! I love all of your jewelry but these pieces are stunning. Think my favorite is the coppper too. I like how you have incorporated rocks from your travels. Gorgeous work as per usual...the wire wrapped fabric beads in the blue bracelet are stunning!

Julie your jewellery is stunning... love how you have incorporated the pieces from your walk in the copper one, very special.
My favourite is the blue bracelet (might be due to the fabric beads??? love a bit of fabric).
Your work is amazing!

These bracelest are really lovely Julie, you may be using Nina's techniques but they are truly your own creations. I love how you have incorporated the stones you found on your walk, but I'd have to admit that the blue and silver is my fav. Ux
