|Viking Braid Bracelet - 3 strands of viking knit, forged clasp|
First up - the bracelet for my husband! This was a tester piece, and I say it is a success! He loves it, says it fits him the best of all the bracelets I've made for him, and it's been quite a few....Now available in my etsy shop; made with copper, sterling silver wire, and yellow gold filled wire (I'm also offering to use rose/pink gold filled wire instead of copper). My husband's has a handmade copper clasp, but the ones in my shop will have sterling silver. All handmade and all metal and fabulous!
|Dragonfly Cuff - roller printed, stamped, hammered|
Next is a bracelet for one of my very best friends - and I hope it has arrived on her doorstep by now! Roller printed and stamped copper cuff, featuring one of her favorite creatures, the dragonfly. A lot of detail is lost in the photos - the copper glows and the scene is more obvious in person. Cattails, water, a sliver moon, and lots of dragonflies!
|Goldstone Pendant - hammered sterling silver, goldstone nugget (shown on viking knit chain)|
Finally I'm showing off a pendant. It's not my usual style, but I love how it turned out! Goldstone nugget wrapped in sterling silver wire. What I really love is the hammered wire on the bottom half of the briolette wrap! It was tricky to work with, but I think the end result was worth it. The hammering adds interest, texture, and a stronger nature vibe with the goldstone nugget. I think I'll have to try it again, maybe with an actual briolette!
