Fine Fusion

About this design:

I love playing with fire and decided to make a simple, yet still beautiful and organic piece of jewelry. Funny story about this bracelet...Just yesterday I was at my dentist for a partial root canal (I know, good times) and he knew I made jewelry so I had actually brought 2 bracelets along. He actually asked if I was interested in bartering the 2 bracelets for my dental bill. So, I agreed and gave him the bracelets which he is going to give to his daughters. I thought that was awesome that he even offered. I do enjoy bartering with others. It can be a good way to meet some people.

    Great looking chain. I’m with you on the bartering. This is the third year I’ve traded jewelry for tax prep. My tax lady and I are both happy with the deal. :D

    This is soo cool, and I love the story connected to it also! It is so well done, and very nice as it is, but I would love to put some dangles on it also! A nice fresh colored Calcedony maybe…? :-)

    Thank you guys! This dentist is actually the on call dentist for when mine is out of town. He is so fabulous I’d almost want to switch to him! My main dentist has me paying my current bill with him. Too bad I couldn’t barter there, too! The next piece I fuse I’d like to add beads to, but this one I ended up stopping just short of adding dangles in case someone would like something simpler. I myself enjoy adding stones to anything that isn’t nailed down! You can all probably relate to that! :) I did indeed make the entire bracelet link by link from scratch with fine silver wire. Since my root canal isn’t finished, my main dentist will finish and then I will have to keep paying that bill probably until the day I die! Just kidding about when I die, but the bill will take serious time to pay.

Add your thoughts!
