About this design:

I wanted to experiment a little with other media like leather and silk. I've never used sari silk before. My kids and husband don't like it (At least they are honest with their feedback) I like the colors and the copper but I'm not sure about the dangly bits. I'm interested to hear what others think.

Components:

Copper wire, aging solution, sari silk (From LB), sepia freshwater pearls, copper head pins, leather cord.

    Well, I love the silk wrap and the dangles. But really love the way you loosely wrapped it all with the copper wire! Nicely done.

    I was thinking the same thing as Fresh Baked.
    (I like the loopy look of the wire). I’d wear this with a peach colored silk shirt that I have. I think it has a very unique trendy and fun look. ;)

    Very fun! There is a nice tension among the mixture of hard and soft components you have going–dainty but strong. :-)

    WOW! I like this so much. I have some sari silk that I haven’t used yet. It needs to be the “background” of the piece… like you’ve used it. Great idea. I always love dangles. I agree with everyone else: the free twisted wire is casual and fun.

    My husband is with yours lol, but I’m with the girls here. I think it would look great with western wear. Or something totally edgy.

    I really adore this bracelet. The contrast between the softness of the silk and the strength of the copper screams “WOMAN” to me! Or “MOTHER”
