Bittersweet Wrap-sody cuff


You saw my heat-textured candy bag last week, and now here is the fruit of my labor!



The center-piece is a stamping that I did with a washer from Alkeme (ImpressArt), the rivolis and their settings are from Fire Mountain Gems.  The fabulous buttons on each end are vintage plastic buttons that I picked up in New Jersey the last time I went to visit my cousin.  I also used some over-sized jump rings, links from a chain, and some seed beads (size 11/0s and 15/0s) to finish it off.  There is a metal cuff inside to provide support.  Here are a few of my process photos for you:

Cyndi, what inspired you to think of heat texturing a plastic candy bag? The result is wonderful and organic.

"wrap-sody" - very clever.
