You’ll want to look closely at Bettina Welker’s newest faux raku bangles and brooches. The densely crazed surface of her faux technique was achieved after much experimentation.

Her process is a further exploration and refinement of the ideas she developed for a class last summer. This will be a fun one to watch.

Let’s hope your weekend isn’t totally crazed! Bad pun but it fits.

        These bracelets are incredible! Wow! I am blown away, not just by the bracelets but by all of her work. I aspire to be this good someday!

          Thank you all so much! Didn’t think that this experiment could have such a big impact.

          Actually it’s just one bangle – just from different angles:)
