I haven’t had a lot of time to play with my Now That’s a Jig by Brenda Schweder. But I had an idea for a cuff on my way home from teaching at Beadfx yesterday so I decided to try it out.
Here is a pic of the bracelet in progress. You can see how I set up the jig to create the prongs of the bracelet and the flower-shaped focal.
Then I wirewrapped the prongs after I flattened them and shaped them around a bracelet mandrel. I wrapped the central oval for a focal crystal to nestle into. Not sure yet how I will finish the back or if it needs finishing.
