I have arthritis in my hands and right now I'm in the midst of a flare up - that means my hands are screaming in pain. And it makes sense: I need my hands right now because I have decided to make a cuff bracelet using memory wire. Those of you who have used memory wire can understand that using the stuff is painful just thinking about it.
My 1st effort and shaping memory wire into a cuff shape took several efforts but I did manage to get the shape and secured it with crimp tubes. I let it sit overnight and the next day I had the piece explode in my face. A shower of black beads went to the 4 corners of my PigPen (aka workroom, aka studio, aka office). The beads are still where they fell: I'll pick them up bit by bit.
I resigned myself to a change in design. The initial rib has been worked on it and, while I was writing about it elsewhere, I came up with another idea about shaping memory wire.
Well, the result is I have 2 cuff bracelets on the go. I've left both overnight and won't touch them again until tonight at the earliest. Pictures are posted on Bauble Babble. ...Glass0...
