Part of Rebecca’s inspiration also came from this Curl-Up bangle that Christine Dumont wore. The openwork makes the cuff appear delicate but I examined it myself and it was very tough and sturdy (using Kato clay). Christine made her bangle as she was rethinking cane slices on her site, Voila.eu.com, for a module in the popular How to Become a Better Artist series.
Don’t miss Rebecca’s Saturday post about what she learned in Jeff Dever’s session. Jeff taught the crowd how to keep an eye out for unusual materials that cost next to nothing. So smart!
