I just took a tutorial from Cindy Lietz on how to make a Copper Bangle Bracelet,
which required a different size copper wire that I did not have.
I did have a larger gauge wire though.
I found it to be a little difficult to work with, but I like how this turned out.
On the beads that I used is the extruder technic. Which you can also find in Cindy Lietz Libary. If you would like to purchase or view the intro video please visit Cindy Lietz; Dangle Bangle

I have to say when I started this project I didn't actually know what I was getting myself into.
The challange of creating a bracelet out of a roll of wire was not easy. I started bending the wire and got it half way done then sat it down for about a month.
I would see that stupid bent wire hanging on my tool rack everyday. So, Last month or so I picked it up and could not put it down.
I hammered the the gold tone wire into a whimsical wave I then wired each spot together. after it was held together secure I added Lentil Beads, Disc Beads, Ceramic Black Beads, and Glass Seed Beads. Valah! I have a beautiful Bracelet. Some of the Beads used in this I learned through Cindy Lietz, If you would like To Purchace or View the Intro Tutorial Click here: LENTIL BEAD
I created this one of a kind necklace using handcrafted Mobius Beads, Ceramic Black
Beads, Gold Glass Seed Beads, and a Large Brass Focal Bead.
I used silver plated wire for the chain links. It has a very posh look when wearing it.

I really like making this Interchangeable Pendant. I gave it a heart shape to match my heart bead and added some green glass seed beads to give it a bit of flare. What is nice, you can add any bead you like to it. If you would like to learn to make this pendant, please visit Cindy Lietz: Interchangeable Pendants

These pieces were made using Faux Jade technic, and the Ivy leaves were made using a skinner blend. Again from Cindy Leitz tutorials. I added gold paint to bring out the viens in the leaves to give a more realistic look to them. On the embosed faux jade pendant I glazed over it with epoxy resin. The gold plated curly que's were a must, I havent tackeled making my own ball pins heads yet. If You would Like to Learn how to make this cane, Please visit Cindy Lietz: Ivy Leaf Charms, Faux Jade
