Early in June I taught two back to back workshops at Valley Ridge Studio, in the rolling farmland of Wisconsin, that featured my wrap bracelet/necklace design. For several years, I’ve worked with a design that combines vintage ribbon and lace, leather, pearls, beads, sterling wire, aged brass, and antique jewelry bits and pieces along with a variety of found objects; these long wraps make wonderful assemblage to wear as art, wrapped multiple times around the wrist in a layered bracelet or a couple of times around the neck as a choker. The enthusiasm of my students was contagious, and I came back home to work on several new wraps to feature in my shop.This lovely wrap features the word “treasure” that I first stamped and then etched into two stacked layers of aged brass; on either side of the word link, I’ve joined hand wrapped aged brass to form connectors with a distinctive look. One one side, there is a short sterling oblong link chain length that allows for bracelet adjustment; dangling from the end is a vintage brass round locket that measures ½” in diameter. I’ve wired green faceted pearls in links, and these are joined to a long 13” length of assorted beads hand knotted onto silk cord (peridot, pearls, green amethyst, prehnite, all in green tones), and have attached a sterling and brass diamond shaped bali bead to a small section of silk sari fabric, over layered with an antique brass watch chain section. On the other side I’ve stitched together some green sari silk, knotted it with small green pearls on sterling wire; to this I’ve hand sewn an antique key and one of my curved wrapped “cocoon” beads (antique kimono silk and antique bronze faceted French purse seed beads, wrapped around hidden antique words of poetry). This is joined to a wonderful heavy sterling chain link made by etsy artist cathy daily; to this, I’ve added a length of soft brown deerskin leather lace, knotted with pale green pearls and adorned with one of my own cast bronze heart lock charms with the word “open” on back; this is attached to a silverplate watch fob clasp.
Total length of Treasure is 38”.
