Copper tubing, a piece of silver = Cool Bracelet




YAY ME! Look what I made (& lost within 1 hour!!!) yesterday!!! I've been waiting to take this class at
Artful Beads for probably a year. They have so many cool classes, with my favs being the ones working with wire, metals & torches/soldering. Being unemployed isn't conducive to spending $$$$ on jewelry classes so thankfully I had gotten some Amex gift cards for Christmas and I was finally able to make this baby! I  came home, had some lunch then took my son to work. I showed it to him in the car.....I stopped & picked up some milk etc, then back home when I realized it was gone. Talk about wanting to just throw up, cry, and stamp my feet in a true hissy fit. But I didn't, I just knew God wasn't going to do that to me that day, so I called the store, they didn't find it. Well, I had another class for school on the other side of the county yet, so on the way I stopped at the store & looked where I parked & you betcha it was right there under some snowed tire marks, probably my own!

I am absolutely in love with this piece and can't wait to make some more on my own. The cuff is literally made from copper tubing. Added a piece of sterling silver for some pizazz.

Started school this week, so far, so good. This is going to be an awesome semester. I will be learning photshop, illustrator & flash. I'm so physched! Though I have to admit the first intro to new software I  do a frantic panic and not much gets through my stubborn Irish noggin, so after I'm done here, I am going to focus on some "step by step" tutorials to help put out the panic episodes. Gotta get to the studying...See Ya!

I love making jewelry and once had the clasp of a necklace break and the beads slide down my shirt. Watching me suddenly grab my chest was funny, I'm sure, but I wasn't laughing. At least not then. Your cuff is awesome!!! I love it and I'm so glad you found it!! :o)

Oh, I love your bracelet and I'm SO glad you found it! How heartbreaking it would have been to have lost it for good. What a cool class, I love working with metal too, especially copper. Right now we are working on stained glass; trying to get a lamp done so I can say I accomplished something this winter besides whining, lol.

Can't wait to see what you create next!

That's cool. What are you making next? Matching earrings and pendant?
To have better luck with Zinnias, perhaps you should not shout, 'Grow Damnit!' Be gentle, shower them with warmth and love and they would grow like weeds. Just kidding. :)

The bracelet is lovely. I was holding my breath that you were not going to find it.

I should have figured that you did given all the pictures. Obviously, I would not make a great detective.
