Cuffs


About this design:

I went on a jewelry making binge this past week end. Made a new cuff and finished some others. The wiring on these cuffs is not as neat as I would like but it is done and I'm not going to re-do them!
I'm taking pieces to the museum gift store tomorrow and the manager specifically asked for cuffs. Apparently they are my best sellers.

Components:

14ga copper wire, 24ga copper wire, glass, stone, pearls, Coral, metal beads, kitchen sink

    There’s something so cool about these…even with what you call “messy” wire work! Think of it as bohemian…and market it that way! :)

    Your cuffs are soooo beautiful, and your tutorial so generous! Thank you! Do you ever use 16 gauge wire, or is it not durable enough? Do you patina your bracelets? You mentioned buying copper wire at the hardware store, but do they need patina? Thank you!
