Artisan Clay Design Team Reveal

It’s already the last Friday in September (can you believe it????), and today is the Artisan Clay Design Team reveal day! Kristie Roeder sends us a pretty piece of prettyness each month and we make something with it and show you! I am really excited about my piece this month!I chose this beautiful dark teal button. While I was at ArtBLISS, Ms. Jen and I discussed how we hadn’t made any bracelets with our pieces from Kristie, so I was determined to do that this time. I immediately thought of chain as connector. I used brass chain I had and attached it to itself with some small jump rings.
I made ribbed round beads in dark teal Bullseye glass that match really well with the button! I patinated some bronze wire with my new Lenk torch and used it to wire wrap the beads and pretty brass filigree bead caps.
I will probably change the clasp, but I don’t have another one at the moment, and don’t have the appropriate gauge to make one out of bronze. This bracelet is meant to fit close to the wrist, so that the button is the showpiece! I was really excited to make a bracelet this month, and hope you like it too! I was also really excited that I finished it on Wednesday evening instead of late Thursday night!!!! Woot!

Check out Kristie’s blog for a list of the other partners and see what they made this month!

  1. Bracelet time! I think the chain is a good idea to keep the pressure off the sides of the button. I had a problem with the chain on the ceramic texture, though…any movement kind of caused a gritty, grinding sensation. Did you get any of that or am I just too easily annoyed? haaaaaaaaaaaaaa
    Ciao!
