Fusion Beads 30 Day Bead Challenge: Day 28
Fusion Beads 30 Day Bead Challenge was to create a wire-wrapped bracelet. I used a combination of copper wire and bronze wire to create this embellished bangle. I used the Now That's a Jig! bangle puck to shape the base of the bracelet.
To dress it up, I created wire-wrapped dangles strung with amber, Swarovski crystals, and yellow opal. The dangles give the piece nice movement and a little playfulness. The dangles flank the focal of the bracelet. The focal is a large copper-colored, Cosmic-cut, Swarovski crystal.
The back of the bangle is micro-wrapped with faceted Hessonite garnets. I love the way that they stud the bracelet. I think I might make a few bangles that are entirely wrapped in this fashion.
