Hurricane


I have been very busy getting ready for two big shows that I am in during November. The first show is the "Beyond Artisan Marketplace", taking place in Calgary at the Blackfoot Inn on November 6-8. This is one of the bracelets that will be in the show, that I recently finished, called "Hurricane". The stunning focal bead is by Rebecca Werner, from Louisiana, and I have attached the bead to a piece of copper that I hammered for added texture. Then I hand wire wrapped more handcrafted lampwork beads, Bali silver beads, Swarovski crystals and copper beads to create this chunky bracelet with lots of jingle! The focal bead which looks like the eye of a hurricane, inspired me to create a piece that looked as though the wind had picked up different items, carried them through the air and created something random but beautiful! I really liked the combination of pink with the copper, and At the moment, I am enjoying mixing metals such as copper with sterling silver. There is something interesting and warm about that marriage!
Visit the Beyond Artisan Marketplace on Facebook, where you can read Artist Spotlights about the fantastic artisans that will be in the show. Pin It

I've always loved mixed metals. Well, not gold and silver actually, but the copper is more of a color, you know? It just looks right with that pink tone in there too. Beautiful!
