This and That

I have been helping out in a jewellery class at school; and picking up a few tips myself. In a quiet hour last week while most of the student's were working on projects I made this bracelet. I think every wire wrap is shaped by a question: Can you show me jump rings again? Is this tight enough? How do I? It was a nice haven, a comfort zone within a comfort zone; wire within teaching. I didn't have anyone in mind as I made this one so I have popped it on Etsy.
Thanks to Sherry, Kate and Dawn for participating in PIF you will get surprises soon.

Hi Julie, I love this little bracelet, it reminds me of imperial mints, my grandma used to keep them in her handbag for that occasional excursion in the motor car. I don't think you can get them here but they were very hard and used to last for ages, probably rotting your teeth with all the sugar. Thanks for the trip down memory lane, from Charmaine xx

EVERYTHING you put your hands to becomes an amazing work of art! I am just blown away by the direction you've taken...feast for the senses to be sure!
Needed to come by and drop off a little love and some hugs.

Thank you for reminding me how rewarding it is to be working in a learning environment with people who have similar goals. I've missed that, in my hiatus from art.

It's a beautiful bracelet - I love the subtle crackling in the beads.

I haven't stopped by for a while, it's that time of year. Well, what a visual buffet, now I'll sit back and digest all that I have stuffed in. Thanks for sharing your amazing work, Julie.

Seasons Cheers!
