Alluring- new bracelet cuffs!


For those of you who follow me regularly, you may remember my "Alluring" necklaces from last season.




 Well, I did so well with them at my Fall shows, that I decided to expand that line, and try my hand at some bracelets.

These all started with several big old brass metal fishing lures. However, these are not your average  fishing lures.....these ones have turned pretty with old age and have a beautiful patina.

 First, these lures are cleaned, hammered,  bent into shape, and the patina is protected with layers of wax.

Then comes the fun part of actually designing the cuff bracelet. Playing off of the gorgeous colors in the metal, I chose some vintage lace, from my stash of lace and ribbons, recycled sari silks, leather, beads, and crystals that fit my color scheme. 


Then I added  some special elements, like my hand crafted resin lockets and bezels, to embellish the cuffs. 



This one opens up!



I was pretty happy with how they turned out.  I also made some new Alluring necklaces, and will post about those next time!
