Yin Yang Copper Bracelet

by zoraida.

(patchogue, ny)

While playing with copper wire, I somehow made this spiral that become, what looked like, a Yin Yang symbol. I thought it’d make a cool center for a bracelet.

 

 

Originally, the sides were coiled wire. I was never happy with it, so I took it apart. It seemed stiff and uninteresting. I also wanted it to be comfortable and maybe appeal to men as well as women. I like substantial bracelets.

 

 

Finally, I simply made thick, 14gauge, jump rings in two different sizes. I liked the circles all over the place without too much flourish and was happy with the result.

Your creations are always so intricate yet classic and simple at the same time. I love this bracelet with the ying-yang look and feel to it!

The swirl gives a mystical feel to the bracelet and your wire work is stunning. Kudos!
