Green Chalcopyrite Wire Work Cuff

About this design:

I had an idea for a wire cuff and the only bead that would work for this was this donut. It was a little smaller than what I wanted for the center but I think it turn out fairly well.

    Gorgeous creativity, Elaine!

    Hey Nancy, ching, ching, ching! $$$ All the beauties that LB carries are sooo tempting aren’t they? I think many of us here have lightly padded pocket books and heavy bead boxes. ;-)

    Elaine, your wire work is just plain fantastic! I love the way you have used it to embellish the design. Is the frame on this bracelet 10ga copper? :)

    LRC, yes, I think the frame wire is about 10g or maybe 12g…I’m not exactly sure.
