Fairy Berries

 A new bracelet.

"Fairy Berries" bracelet - glass and brass.

So many headpins.
Each one wound into a chain.
Off-mandrel glass leaves were slipped onto some of the links as I built the bracelet.

All of the headpins were made on 20g brass wire with hammered spirals on the ends.
Some of them have droplets on the end, some are plain.

The bubbles on the spirals are from gas the brass releases when heated.

It makes the coolest sound when you wear it.

I think I am going to make another one - all in grays and pale honey browns.

Just gotta have it?
It's for sale in the museum gift shop at The Memorial Art Gallery.
