    Way to go Elaine! Ya done good kid! This is an excellent piece of work and I really like your variations. Keep playing around with the design and you will be amazed how many different ways you can construct a cuff. I feel like a proud parent! :D

    Oh, WOW! Yes Elaine, you should be proud of this one! Love the gentle curves you placed in the frame. And the stones are perfect! Fav!

    Nancy, Oh great teacher of wire wrapped cuffs. You are the master. I am the Grasshopper. ;-)
    I will learn from your example, too! :-D

    Don’t sell your self short Elaine. I’ve been doing this for about 4 or 5 years so I had a head start. Just keep evolving…

    Yes Grasshopper, you must toil away in your little corner and make many cuffs to glorify the skills of your mentor. (snicker, snicker) :D

    Very nice – maybe I’ll be able to do this too! I just took a class and did my first wire wrapping – now I think anything that doesn’t move is in danger of being wire wrapped. I’ll be toiling in my little corner too, just like Grasshopper…..
