In my last post I finished by showing a really simple triple-wrap assemblage necklace that I made from my "bits and pieces" bin. I had a really fun time making it, so I decided to make a few bits and pieces assemblage braclelets.

Then I made a series of cathedral arch pieces, using reclaimed brass from an old lamp. I worked on each piece for several days.

Then finally, I fabricated these 5 bracelets out of copper and brass sheet metal:
The bracelets started out as bangles, but the forms began to bore me to tears, so I cut them apart and started over again! I do that all the time. I have to remind myself that if I just keep working at it, something nice will appear in the end.
I'm already working on projects for next time!
Leaving you with this quote:
"To draw, you must close your eyes and sing." Pablo Picasso said that. I think it's a beautiful quote.
Until next time!
