I know the title of this post is corny! It's early in the morning and the coffee is just kicking in. Perhaps, I should wait to post this until after the caffeine works it's magic. Not! So, I'll keep the words to a minimum.
This bracelet fits the wrist like a cuff and it feels wonderful. 'It's a good thing!' says Martha Stewart. I've used heavy 14 gauge copper wire for the spirals (I used my Hulk hands!). The Lapis Lazuli heart was a lost treasure in my stash of goodies and I was delighted to rediscover it and that the size works.
Lovely bronze wire was used to make a gazillion hearts, that link together much like chain maille. I used a lobster clasp and was a happy camper to see that the color matched.
I'm always experimenting with making heart shapes for earrings. I want something different, but the same (I need to drink more coffee!) So, I gave these copper hearts a bit of hammering to add something, something, then a patina to the wire and sweet pink crystals for movement.
Now, on with my day. The agenda is boring. I need to make an invoice/manifest to ship a batch of jewelry. Tomorrow will be fun. I'm going over to my friend Jeanette's home and studio. She's writing a tutorial for a magazine for a new bracelet and I get to help! I'll write a post about this adventure in the next few days.
Have a joy filled and creative day! ~ Linda
