Flower Bangle Challenge Blog Hop

Finally I have internet!
Now I can share with you my reveal for the Flower Bangle Challenge.
I was sent a plain bangle and asked to embellish it.
-and embellish it I did!

I started by making my own forged copper headpins. Then I wire wrapped a glass bead and a czech glass flower bead on each of the 27 headpins.
Then I wire wrapped thin copper wire around the bangle adding the wire wrapped flowers and glass beads as I went along. I added 2 of the glass beads and 1 of the flower bead to each section.
When I was done with all of that I could have stopped but there was bare bangle showing between the wire wrapped dangle sections which were begging for embellishment so I wire wrapped teardrop glass seed beads in between each dangle section.

I have left the wire without a patina but I am strongly considering adding it...we'll see :-)

Hi Shannon, I'm so sorry it's taken me until now to leave a comment, but we've had a poorly internet connection most of the day! Typical!

Your bangle is so pretty and delicate! The coils hold everything in place perfectly. I've left the copper wire I used shiny too, as I like the contrast. Thank you so much for taking part in the challenge!

I love the dangles and seed beads. I can just hear the jingle the bracelet makes as you move around. :)
