I like Swarovski crystals. Over the years I sneak them into pieces; used sparingly and in moderation. A couple years back I saw a crystal cuff bracelet at Nordstrom; and it really caught my eye. Now re-exploring bracelets and bead-weaving I felt compelled to make one.
It's a lot of sparkle; and I like the peak-a-boo styling: wear with a denim jacket, or nice long sleeve white shirt and a pair of jeans.
It was challenge to photograph; hope these pics capture a bit of this fun cuff.
Time flies is my excuse for unintentional lapse in posting. Happy New Year, Happy Valentine's Day and Happy Birthday to me!
Lots of ideas stirring; however not a lot of studio time these days. Busy time of year with school and neighbourhood commitments. However, I have been needling away on some bead-weaving.
I love bead-weaving. It is the first technique I really embraced; and have re-kindled my passion for it. I attended the BABE show in November and was enamored with Melanie Potter's work. Pictured is one her flower motif necklaces I recently finished. Way back when ... all I did was bead-weaving; mostly bracelets. I still love to do; and I think will find my way back to doing more and more this year. I'm finding that I like collaborated pieces techniques, textures and materials. I plan to continue this exploration ....
