And here is the finished Bracelet!


I created this piece to give to my Aunt. My mother's oldest sister, who has been going through some tough times in her life right now. She has recently moved into a rehabiliation center very near where I live. I hope to become closer with her while she's so close by, and hopefully will develop a solid relationship. She's recently started beading too, which will help! She started beading and has continued because it's so therapeutic. I hope it plays a pivotal part in her growth, her healing, and wakes up her creative spirit.


Thank you to Cindy Wimmer for such a cool project in Easy Wire. I think this might be the first time that I actually created something from start to finish from one of the magazine projects. I had a lot of fun creating this and I think I may do one for another special person who I can't mention because I don't know, she might read my blog. ;)

  9. Aren't those washers fun! I have used them several times and love them. The strength link is awesome - I am sure your Aunt will treasure it. Your loops always amaze me - I think they are the most perfectly round ones I have seen - how do you do it?!!

    I'm glad you road-tested this tutorial and shared the step by step process! Jeanette did an amazing job stamping this link too...for some reason I just can't get my letters lined up right. It's great to see this project from start to finish. You're a natural!
