I've just deleted the original post that I did of this because it kept getting weird comments on it. Nothing abusive or anything it was just unreadable letters / words so I'm not sure what has happened there .... so here we go again !
This is my first attempt at making a wired cuff bracelet using non tarnish silver wire ... I used 1.5mm for the base & 0.8mm for threading the beads on. It was just trial & error making it up as I went along. I've now got sore fingers & I broke a finger nail really low so that's sore too, I really admire these wire workers who do this sort of thing on a regular basis - all I can think is that you get used to it ?!!! AND short nails are probably a good idea ! ANYWAY here is the cuff bracelet, I used white pearls, grey pearls, Swarovski clear crystals & a few glass seed beads THEN I finished off with some black glass rondelle beads that I found in my stash. I was quite pleased with my first effort. I think once my fingers have got over the shock I'll attempt another before the fingernail grows back ( eye rolling )
Welcome to my little corner of the world where I get to show like minded people my crafting efforts ! I live in the North West of England in Chorley, Lancashire. I enjoy all types of paper crafts mostly card making & making jewellery. I'm happily married & we have one daughter. My " baby " is Minnie my little yorkie who patiently sits by my side while I'm creating & regularly pinches ribbon & off cuts of paper & card from my desk. Thank you for any comments you leave, I appreciate them all..
The latest member of our family, our cheeky little yorkie Minnie. She's a right little character, full of energy & always up to something ... put it this way, you don't need the tv on for some entertainment when Minnie is around !
