|Four Bangles with Four Filler Bangles|
Tracy Statler over at Make Bracelets! is
hosting a Wrapped, Stacked & Layered Challenge .
Thank you, Tracy!
Here's my entry and you'll find the list of
participants below. I can't wait to see
what everyone makes!
I was away from my studio when fanciful devices Marina listed her
Tutorial for Tribal Gypsy Bangles on Etsy. However,
that didn't stop me from buying it, because her jewelry designs
are like none other! That woman makes her own rules, I tell ya!
Now that I'm home, I'm finally getting
some time to play. If you'd like to try this, head on over to Etsy and
grab the tutorial for your own self!
Marina's directions are succinct and easy to understand. Plus, she offers
tons of photos to help you along your way.
|Cording and wire over heavier wire...with a button accent.|
I think this may be my favorite one of the day. I don't normally like to
use buttons in jewelry design, but since this one has
the shank on the back, I don't think of it as a button.
|Bone Beads, Mother of Pearl, a Rock & Shell, Etc. on Waxed Linen|
I liked using the shell & rock that I picked up on the beach in
south Texas. Both already had holes in them.
|Yarn, 2 kinds of wire & Assorted beads|
This is probably my least favorite, but it blends well with
the others. I think it needs a little more smudging.
|Assorted beads, Bone, Glass, Lampwork, Sea Glass, Etc. And part of a Shell|
I was pleased with this one. I drilled holes in the large piece of shell.
A couple of those beads were
from an old wind chime. Good stuff! Recycle, baby!
