Snow White


About this design:

This was a request for all white stones in the style of my other wrap bracelets. I wasn't sure how that would look but I think it turned out pretty in the end. What do you think?

BTW, I tried silver filled wire for this and was very pleased with it. It's a lot harder to work with than silver plated but doesn't have that copper core like silver plated. Nice! and very sturdy for clasp and jump rings!

Components:

Rainbow moonstone bricks and rounds, opal quartz, snow quartz faceted and smooth, Rock Crystal, silver plated beads and silver filled wire for the clasp and jump rings.

    I’d kill for this! What a divine combination of stones and charms.
    I agree about silver filled wire. It looks nicer,but it’s a bit disobedient. I also get obsessed with seeing the copper core in my wraps. I feel as if the world is staring at it..LOL ;)

    Angela, all white ALWAYS works – as long as you use someting to ‘spark’ it (siver, gold, etc.) and you use different shapes ‘n sizes of beads – just as you did with this. It IS beautiful and a matching necklace would be a beautiful wedding set – and earrings of course.

    It certainly DID come together!! So delicate and crisp. I’ve used a lot of wire that is the same metal throughout lately, then you can melt headpins and hammer it as much as you like without spoiling it. If it is a particularly hard quality, I torch it until it glows, after that it is soft as copper until you hammer or tumble it.

    White can be so tricky to design with, but you’ve created a lovely bracelet with the handmade wire components and charms. Nice!!

    So clean and beautiful! Thank you for the info on the silver-filled wire. I was hesitant to invest but the price is so much better than the SS wire.
