It's here! The Mostly Metal Design Challenge big reveal! Woo Hoo!
Okay, remember what I started with:
Of these items I used the red cord, the two heart halves, and the two coil beads to create a bracelet. I added more metal to the design in the form of spacers, beads and steel wire from the hardware store, with some contrasting shine in the form Czech glass hearts and rondelle beads.
My favorite aspect of this bracelet is the jingly pendant the two heart halves create. The movement and sound make me very happy.
I also like the random knots with the red cord. The center core of the cord is black, so even as it naturally frays it will continue to add character to the piece.
I loved this bracelet so much as I was working on it that it conveniently ended up being sized to fit my wrist perfectly. How about that!
But enough about me! Whaddaya say we head on over to the blogs of the other participants?
This is going to be so much fun! Happy Hopping! =D
