    Thanks so much Little Round Chick! Don’t know what happened to my description – it disappeared and I can’t go back to add one!?? I’d been wanting to do one of these for the longest – ALL the beautiful cuff designs that I’ve seen here were inspirational and this is an homage to each of them!
    These are most of my favorite colors (anything southwest/Native American esp Navajo and Zuni)and Copper is my favorite metal – or is it silver….LOL :)

    Components are: Yellow Jasper pendant (LB), African Turq teardrops (LB), Sponge Coral (most from LB) and Copper Artistic Wire (14g) and Copper wire (22g).

    Shannon, this is outstanding!!! What an absolutely gorgeous cuff you’ve created! I love the colors with the copper wire and the spirals at each end are a beautiful finishing touch! :D

    Thanks for coming back and reposting your info! :D

    Beautiful, Silly Chick!!! I love the stones and shapes you used! And I really like the spirals at the ends!

    I want to try one of these too, but the heaviest wire I have is 18 ga. Hope to get some heavier wire next week. I love Artistic Wire – very impressed with it’s quality, and so much more economical than silver! I wish I had someone local that sold it…

    Thanks so much Little Chick and Dizzy Chick! I’m glad you like it – it was fun to make – not nearly as difficult as I had convinced myself it would be! The artistic wire is easy to work with – not so stiff you can’t form the cuff with your hands! The spirals aren’t too hard either (although I know mine aren’t perfect, I was surprised they came out as well as they did!) – they took a little more patience!

    Lori, please give it a try – wigjig.com has 12, 14 and 16g wire – 25 ft for 13$ +/- and that’s more than enough for several bracelets and they have it in many diff colors, too!! :)

    This is so awesome! I have not attempted the wirework mostly because I have been intimidated. You did a great job!

    Hi there Leigh and Fashion Chick!! I really appreciate the kind words!! Leigh, now that you know ‘all-thumbs’ here can do it, you shouldn’t feel intimidated any longer! I’ll bet you’d do a great job – after all, your other pieces are beautiful – no reason your wirework should be any different!
