About this design:

Ooooohh my... dunno if I'm ready with it or if I will make it into two pices. I have had some issues with this. The bigges issue is the clasp, first I had one that I had made but it didn't work, I trashed it in the end... (anger management)... Not that I'm totally unhappy having it this way... Need to think. My hands are tarnished after this piece. The frontside I made first. Then time ran away so the backside is just litlle stuff on, however I had planed to not do so much on the backside ;) I had crazy fun with fronside. Okay I had to restart three times but the last time I just had fun. One can have tha backside in front.
However I might re-work some... The repurposed stuff are seen in pictures ;) You see what it's? Will post a picture of it.
I had big ambitious to do more designs but no time...


Okey I will do this soon...

    Frida, what an awesome, unique piece! It looks like you did a lot of wire work! I’m not sure what you re-purposed- I’ll have to take a better look!

    I cannot for the life of me really figure out what you repurposed but d**n girl this thing is awesome as all get out!!!!!! That skull looks happy as a pig on a poke ( don’t even know what that means) with all his blimgy surroundings. Awesome wire work…jeez your hand must.hurt!!

    Deb Harding says:

    Wait….a giant paperclip because that’s what is off to the side of the cuff.

    Julie Shane says:

    Frida, I am SO amazed at your wire wrapping!!! There are SO many pretties…!!!
    I also think it’s a giant paper clip or 2 or 3.
    However I see the two batteries that Maria is talking about!

    Laud says:

    This is so interesting! There’s a lot going on in front, so I think you should keep the back simple.

  10. Frida
    Frida says:

    :D :D Thank you Maria, Asia, Deb, and Julie!

    Yes paperclip is right two of them, and darn stubborn to work…

    Hahhaha LOL about the batteries, no batteries here but two pyrite stones. But they do look like batteries but I think batteries are toxic?


  11. Frida
    Frida says:

    Thank you Laud!

    Yes I think it shouldn’t be more in the back. If I had more time I might have done some stuff different. My first clasp was made of paperclip but I need to do a new one if I will use that… hmmmm..

    I saw the big paper clips and the “batteries” :) I’m relieved that you won’t really be walking around with toxic waste around your wrist but only pyrite! :) This is fantastic!! I am going to study it and try some of that fabulous wire wrapping myself! Excellent job, Frida!!!

    Frida says:

  20. Deb Harding
    Deb Harding says:

    Well see I saw those things but they didn’t look like batteries to me. The side that’s flat has writing.
