About this design:

I'm new to all this so please be gentle. :) Just learning wire work and this one gave me plenty of practice with wraps. The design hints of belly dancing some how thus the title.


Various beads from my stash and clasp made from 16g argentium wire.

    Gosh, this is truly lovely. I can’t wirewrap due to neurological issues but I think this is a first rate effort being new to all this.

    Good God,that’s pretty!!! Your colors are so soft,and complimentary. I like the way you used longer and shorter to get them all in there,and still let them be seen.I love a bracelet that makes noise. Your wraps look fine,and you sure got a LOT of practice with this.

    I promise to be a beginner – especially to wire work. I did about a dozen clasps in copper before hammering out the silver one.

    Meant to add the photo frame was done with photo shop express which I think was free or at least very inexpensive.
