Mystery Cuff, in progress
So because this cuff has no mythical origin (and duh, all the other ones do! They're magical!) it has no name. It was just worked around the center piece of vintage costume jewelry, which belonged to my great-grandmother. I have a bag full of pieces I want to try to use! Not all of them are as pretty, like, say, the pieces from the 60s and 70s. I dig things from that era as much as the next vintage-digging-gal, but the costume jewelry can be a little... garish. And I'm having to decide how to attach things like clip-on earrings, brooches, and other things that have backs and pointy parts. This piece was one of a pair of clip-on earrings and I just sort of wiggled the clip with my tiny jewelry pliers until it broke off. Extra-precise work.
OH WAIT, I'M SORRY, DID YOU THINK YOU WERE JUST SEEING SOME SILLY WORK IN PROGRESS?!?
Mystery cuff, totally stinking finished already
Mystery cuff, finished so fast I bet you are surprised
Mystery cuff, modeled beautifully, probably to remain forever unnamed
Anyway, I basically just made it for fun, for myself. I have an idea for a cuff that is meant to be ghostly, and I'd like to use similar, but lighter colors. So this was kind of a nice practice run to see how all of those might come together. I did find that I need more greys. That's the end!
