So a lot of you really seemed to like last week’s video tutorial where I shared how to make wire wrapped beaded bangles.  Well, the style allows for so much versatility that today I added an embossed copper blank to the mix, and made up an earthy copper design.  You don’t have to know how […]

Okay, show of hands: who still wears a watch?  I guess I am old school, because my smartphone hasn’t replaced my watch just yet.  Typically, it’s not one of my favorite things to put on, though, because I am a bracelet-a-holic (a fact that’s evident, if you read here often).  So I thought if I […]
