Hammered bangle

This bangle started life as 3mm round wire. I had to taper the ends to make them thin enough to wrap around each side. Due to the hammering, the main body of the bangle has a square profile. It is marginally adjustable and can be opened a little bit to ease putting it on. When it's on, it can be squeezed a little bit smaller. This is a small bangle (6cm - 6.25cm diameter), but I have just about enough wire to make a bigger one if you would like! It is for sale in my Boticca shop.

Last year I made two really cute sterling silver charm bracelets with genuine Murano glass beads (bought in Venice, by me), topaz, jade, rock crystal and Chinese characters. I thought they'd be really popular and sell like hot cakes. Not so, BUT, and this is the mystery, they are the most searched for item when I look at my Feedjit data! How very strange... If you too want to have a look at them, they're here:
and for sale here, in my Dawanda shop: Xi for happiness and Shou for longevity

I think they'd make nice presents, but I would...

Anticlastic on Boticca

This ring is one of my first designs. I made the very first prototype as a Saturday morning experimental project before going into town. This was about seven years ago! They've always been best-sellers, and I really love them. This one's for sale in my Boticca shop, but please contact me if you'd like one made in your size.
