Wirework Bangle


I just got my hand on these Swarovski special stone 1201 27mm, a close brother of the rivoli range. My original design was to incorporate chainmaille into the body of the bangle itself but it seem to over shadow the main stone. I am still lingering with the idea of wirework and chainmaille hybrid design. After all chainmaille is wirework, is it not. This design seemed to leave me an unfinishing feeling as if something is missing from it. I definitely have to relook into the design to improve it.

Wow, that swarovski is so beautiful! And it is huge comparing to the rest of the piece. I first thought it's a ring :) I think it's an interesting path you taken to combine wirewrapping to chainmaille. Perhaps it helps to balance the bangle if you add something to the part that goes around the wrist? Like if there was three of those wires instead of one...

I am so inspired and in awe with your workmanship and design. I truly love all of your pieces. It was very hard to pick which were my favorites? This Wirework Bangle is so beautiful! Your work is so delicate and soft. I can not believe that you have only been doing this for 2 years. You truly are an amazing artist. Do you teach? I would love to be able to take a class with you. Do you offer and sale instructions?
