I have been wanting to design this bracelet for about a year. I admire Eni Onken's talent of wire wrapping and all of her designs. I had purchased her tutorials and finally got the confidence in my skill level to go ahead with the project and here is a bit about the bracelet.
Garden Party Artisan Wire Wrapped Bracelet. This bracelet has all of the makings for turning heads at your next garden party or special occasion. I have always admired the wire artist Eni Oken and had learned this technique from her tutorials. Garden party has been wire wrapped in sterling silver wire in different gauges to give a unique look. The base of the bracelet is on memory wire to give it a bangle type fit. This bracelet adorns fancy 14mm bali silver beads, agate, a 30mm by 22mm new jade oval bead,and 25mm x18mm carnelian beads. The accent beads wire wrapped along this bracelet are 2mm and 3mm sterling silver round beads, 4mm camel jade, moss agate, and rhodonite beads To end the bracelet is a hook type clasp. This bracelet measures 9" end to end and 2 3/4" in diameter. This bracelet will fit comfortably up to an 7 3/4" wrist.
