I am continuing with Deryn's Summer Jewlery Challenge, in the midst of making jewelry for shows and shops. This is Project 2 from Mary Hettmansperger's book, "Wrap, Stitch, Fold and Rivet.
Maybe these should be called "Bend and Snap". Remember from "Legally Blonde". Okay, how about more bend and less snap please.
These projects are and will be teaching me more and more as I go along. And, I am loving it! That is exactly why I am in it with Daryn, Beth, and Deborah (so far).
I worked with applying heat patinas and wire wrapping in this project. Also, annealing the copper and bending (and re-bending) was a bit of a challenge.
I added a delicate czech bead inside the fold, as the inside dangle, but it is not really visible in the above pictures. Maybe you can see it just peeking out of the left earring on the bottom picture.
I did enjoy making these, but excited to move on to the next project.
Oh, yes, I must confess the snap got me on these.
