Bracelets Forms-The Perfect Blank Canvas

Whether your ideas are elaborate or simple, these bracelet forms are the perfect blank canvas to showcase your work. 

I found these beautiful examples by Louise Fischer Cozzi and I had to share them.
The organic feel of the patterns are achieved with water transfers (the black and white only stack) and with silk screens (the black and white with reds and greens).



Would you wear that many at once?I just might if mine were as gorgeous as Louise's are.

Enjoy more of Louise's work on her site here.

We sell several different bracelet blanks
Don't limit yourself to just the brass ones.  Why not try the silver ones and also challenge yourself to see what you can do with the "open" or "backless" styles too!

Find them all here

Buna Cord Demystified

Buna Cord and O-rings
My assistant Patti helped me put this video together a while ago.  I just forgot to let everyone know that we published it!
Our plan is to make several (shorter) videos showing how I use different products to create my jewelry etc.
This  video about Buna cord is a little bit long (our apologies).
If you've ever had questions about how to use Buna cord and O-rings we hope this video will answer those burning questions for you.  :)
We show lots of examples at the end so maybe grab a cuppa and watch it here.
