And then made a project that was inspired by a piece in the book.
I chose bracelet #59, page 127, from the “30 Minute Bracelets Book.” The original design was by Amy Tavern. I made smaller moveable links and added a big copper distressed circle – PLANETARY SEQUENCE.

a great book for the beginner, student, or experienced metalsmith. it includes tips for equipping the jewelry studio and choosing tools as well as an introduction to the properties of metal, basic techniques, advanced techniques, surface treatments and studio projects. what sets this book apart from many on the market are the detailed instructions and photos that accompany the beautifully designed projects. projects that you would actually want to make and wear. a number of tips and tricks can be culled from the detailed photos of each piece’s process. who knew that you could ball up the end of wire on a number of pieces all at once?
the projects i would like to riff off of: the cage pendant, glass pendant, no -solder bracelet, and the wisdom earrings (minus the teeth).
Right now I’m feeling a bit BOHO…but tomorrow? Perhaps a bit MOD. It doesn’t matter as these sterling silver big, bold, beautiful earrings fit almost any mood or occasion. Get your happy on!
