Beaded Wire Cuffs
by Patt Sheldon.
I’m a Czech bead fanatic and have been finding new ways to use my extensive collection.
I also love making , wearing, and selling cuffs.
I use a 14 or 16 gauge wire for the frame, then wire wrap beads or glass pearls across the frame using 20 gauge.
Interestingly, I have displayed them together in 3 shows, with no sales, yet have sold 2 in a store with $45 added to the price to help cover consignment fees. I sometimes think stores ‘legitimize’ our work.
Agree or disagree?
