Bracelets for the Upper Arm

About this design:

Last week I decided to make a bracelet for the upper arm. I'd had an inquiry from a young college age girl a couple of weeks ago about whether I had or could make such a bracelet. So I made it, took numero uno to the Art Mart on Thursday and promptly sold it to one of the other vendors. She is a trumpet player and has been looking for just such a bracelet. However, I forgot to take a photo of it.

Yesterday I decided to make another one. I had enough 10ga wire left to make two so that's what I did. The one with the large opening in the center was a bit of a challenge. The over lapping of the wire made it difficult to keep the oval uniform. After much pushing and pulling I finally got it more or less like I wanted. I'll take them to the farmers market Friday and see what happens.

    I’m sure there is a joke somewhere in here about there not being enough wire in the world to encircle some upper arms….. ;) LOL!
