Black and blue bracelet

About this design:

Have you ever tryed to weave over four (side by side) memory wires? I just done that. Terrible! That memory wire really is keeping its shape and my wires were not under control! Finally I managed to finalize them.


Memory wire, waxed cotton cord, bronze, silver plated cypsy bells

    Arja, I had the same reaction as Mary when I saw the magazine cover! I even told my hubby that the bracelet reminded me of that stunning necklace design you posted here awhile back! He was happy to get to see your photo and read about you — he also loves the 2 pieces I’ve purchased from you! :D
