Almost a Disaster.....REDO


About this design:

I put this one on before also. I almost ruined it by soldering the pendant to the bracelet. It melted the acrylic crystals and, discolored the wire around the bangle.
The bangle was pretty big so I cut about 1/2" off of it, I replaced the acrylic amber crystals with brown czech crystals, I wired it to the bangle this time instead of soldering it. Then I used a gold colored brass wire around the bangle then added tan crystals to the spirals.
I am so much happier with it now.
Make sure and look up the first version to compare it.

Components:

Vintaj remade pendant, copper tubing, 14 gauge gold brass wire, 20gauge copper wire, czech crystals

    Thanks Ladies!! I’m somewhat OCD. I can’t stand it if something isn’t quite how I want it. I will redo it until it’s what I want or I’ll toss it.
