|Remember, I started with componenets|
|wire-wrapped them together|
Hmmmmmm. Looks like I could use viking weave in the center to make the beginnings of the carriage body. When I did decide to embellish it, I went all the way.
|So here is the carriage body|
|Side view. Yes, it sticks outward. Convex shaped|
|Tendrils and wrapped silver colored wire right side|
|This is how I added the tendrils. I wrapped the 26 g around a piece of 12 gauge copper wire|
|right side complete|
|Left side. Pretty!|
|This is what it looks from the inside|
|finished--sorry for the poor picture, I didn't have a good light source and it was raining|
|~22 cm long, just right for my wrist|
|close up of the carriage weave|
|I'm so proud of my work.|
Now that it's completely assembled,I'm in a quandary about finishing it into a bracelet. It's too pretty to bend, but it's too big for a necklace component.
So people--I'm asking for a consensus. Should I finish it as originally planned--a bracelet? or as something else?
By the way, this part 2 came out better didn't it?
