Red Cowboy Angel Bracelet


About this design:

On a bracelet form I curved the Mythical Wing to sit on the wrist. Punched a 2nd hole at the opposite end of the Wing. Painted the wing with Ruby Vintaj patina and lightly over painted once the piece dried with Bronze Vintaj patina mixed with Vintaj glaze. Lightly painted the chain with Vintaj Bronze over Gunmetal elongated oval chain. Wire wrapped with 22 gauge black wire the chain to the Wing and with a small lamp work bead in between and a wire wrapped loop on the end. I repeated this wrap at the other end with a loop for the clasp to fit thru. On the other side of the Wing I wire wrapped a loop to the wing, a lamp work bead then wrapped a black lobster clasp. The entire bracelet length is a little over 8 inches to sit loose on the wrist.

Components:

LB, Brass Mythical Wing, Gunmetal Elongated Oval Chain black lobster clasp, 22 gauge black wire and 3 small lamp work beads.
