Violet Arm Band
I took on a custom order this week and revisited my floral series. I've been meaning to develop that series, but I get distracted easily by other design ideas.
So finally back on the series, the client and I developed this concept together. I enjoyed the collaboration and I think the final design is better for it.
These faceted gemstones, amethsyt, spinel, and sapphire really sparkle and catch the light beautifully, bringing the band to life.
While I was working on this upper arm band, I realized it would make an excellent ring if I could miniaturize it. The ring would be a perfectly sellable design due to the fact that it would be adjustable and built just like this band. Woohoo!!
So the ring post should follow as soon as I can make up my mind about the tiny beads to weave on.
My name is Mary. My daughter has recently moved on to college leaving me footloose and fancy free. This affords me more time to pursue my own goals:)
I have always made things since I was a young girl, I loved needlepoint and embroidery in my youth. I tried my hand at many crafts over my life but I have always stuck with jewelry and beads.
When I discovered wire wrapping I knew I had found what I was looking for all my life!
I work in engineering designing mechanical parts, though currently I manage mechanical aspects of PC Boards specifically.
I dream of one day wire wrapping full time.
