by Kristene Gonzales. (Draper, Utah, USA) Done with a pretty simple wire wrap for the fact that I was going to use this to teach a class, and had to come up with a piece that was pretty but still easy enough for beginners. I like how it turned out though. I like the Prehnite beads. Kristene Gonzales ADORN ME … [Read more...] about Prehnite Cuff
by Catherine Smith. (Oklahoma) I love working with seed beads, and I love delicate and simple jewelry.

by Jessica. (Nyack NY) I used to make memory wire wraps, but I wanted a change. I stilled loved the wrapped look, but didn't like the stiffness of the memory wire.

Jessica Copper … [Read more...] about Seed Bead Wrap Bracelets

by Natasha Burger. (Lacombe, Alberta, Canada) Memory wire to the rescue!!! I've only ever made custom bracelets as I worried they wouldn't fit otherwise.

Using the large bracelet size wire and several wraps gives me a universal size … [Read more...] about Memory Wire Bracelets

by zoraida. (Smyrna, NY) I haven't made one of these rustic cuffs in a while. I wanted to create a wider, bolder cuff that would appeal to men in particular, so here it is. I textured it with a chasing hammer and gave it a simple clasp. There is just a little patina on it this time just because my husband liked the brighter copper color. I hope other men … [Read more...] about Men’s Wide Rustic Copper Cuff
