Rose and Copper Cuff

About this design:

This is the 3rd cuff I've made in this color-way. They're all different, of course. The other 2 sold before I could get a picture of them. Let's hope this one sells quickly, too!


14 g. copper, 24 g. copper, Swavorski crystals, glass pearls, and various seed beads

    I love this color combination with the copper. My husband keeps wanting me to make and sell. I just cannot imagine parting with something as beautiful as all you girls make. Wow into my favorites again.

    Faith, it can be hard to let go of a pretty piece, but it is also a kick for me to know others are wearing and enjoying my creations. Besides, then you can buy more beads! ;)

    Gorgeous !!!!!!!!!! Love the colors !!!!!!!

    I know what you mean Faith, sometimes it’s hard for me to part with pieces I make…. but like Harriet said…. it’s also nice to know others value and appreciate what we create…. and to know you bring that little bit of joy to others when they were it is very gratifying !!!!!

    Totally gorgeous cuff, Debra! Love the color and the design. Great wire work, too.

    I find it is much easier for me to give my pieces of jewelry away. When I sell them I feel like I’m selling my children. Of course giving them away doesn’t foot the bill. :D

    Thank you all so much!

    I buy 14 g. copper by the foot at the LBS. I buy the 24 g. as craft wire on a spool.

    I sell my work in the teachers’ lounge here at the school where I’m music teacher. Very low overhead…. Didn’t really start selling until a few weeks ago. I’ve had pretty good luck so far. I just bring in a couple of things at a time. Sometimes it’s gone by 8:00, and sometimes it’s there for a couple of weeks. The cuffs have gone pretty quickly, though.

    Love, love, love this. Colors are beautiful and your work is just excellent.

    Did you use a bracelet mandrell and painter’s tape to hold everything while you were making it or what is your secret for holding the wires stable … these bracelets can be tricky but well worth the work.
