Tried an experiment tonite. I had some great, deep blue, round turquoise that I wanted to do something original with. Using some 18g wire, I fashioned a 3-strand cuff-style bracelet, alternating the turquoise with Bali silver. Crimp beads at either end of the beads were used to keep them in place – first strand had the beads at one end of the wire, second strand were just slightly off the center, and third strand had beads at the opposite end of the wire.
It’s a very unique piece…I have to try to figure out how to best photograph it (scanning won’t work, and I’m a little challenged with “modeling” for digital).
Sometimes experiments work, sometimes they don’t. This one happened to click.
