Free Form Bracelet

by Joy Masters on May 15, 2009




I love labradorite. It has magic inside. All you have to do is turn it the right way and you can see it.

This cuff bracelet is based on the form that I learned in class at the Whole Bead Show NYC taught by Elizabeth Knodle. Here I used little clear glass beads lined with black and labradorite roundels.

The cool thing about this design is that is not a design. Well, not really, or not specifically. It’s different everytime. The problem I run into is that I make more turns than the length of the main wire can handle and the bracelet ends up being too short. I need to make sure that I have a longer piece of wire than I think I will need to begin with. Even though mom the guinea pig (not to be confused with sister Julie guinea pig or Suji guinea pig) has tiny bird like wrists, the bracelet was too small for her. I know I have talked about mom’s bird like bones before, but they really are super tiny. So I just added a clasp to the ends of the bracelet and now it can’t escape her tiny, tiny wrist.

Of course, I didn’t take a picture of the clasp, so you may have no idea what I am talking about.

Nothing new here.
