It took me awhile to figure out what I was going to do with my bracelet. I'm generally not much of a bracelet maker, so it was really a challenge for me. I experimented with sari fabric, and held up my other leathers and fibers, but I ultimately decided I was just going to break out my 24g oxidized copper wire and just start doing something. I started with a coil, threw on a pearl stick, coiled the other side and decided I liked that. Then I remembered some vintage pearl drops I'd received in a past Bead Soup that was sitting on my desk somewhere. I slid that on and made another coil. I was onto something! So then it was just a (multi-day) search of just the right beads to use and more & more coiling. There's an adorable vintage silver bell that I'd been saving for just the right thing, so I had to add that. It's just a mix of old and new, various metals, stones, pearls, and crystals. The coils slide around a bit, but that just adds to the fun and movement of the bracelet.
