What a beautiful pile of colors~
I decided to experiment with various textures and colors, mixing metals and strings to see what I can come up with. I think I'm liking what I see and there will be more to come. I've always liked wearing more bracelets that I can really handle but I love the look of stackable bracelets. There will be tons of these available on my Etsy shop soon~
Meanwhile, back to my brass, I created a beautiful necklace that took forever to make but I love how it hangs loosely almost above the belly button. All of the teardrop elements originated from a piece of 14 gauge brass wire that I hand forged, soldered, flattened, filed like crazy and sandpapered until I got a smooth shiny surface.
Then I attached the rest of the necklaced to some chainmaille that I handmade to finish the look.
You can see the finished product here~
Happy New Years All!
