New Copper Jewellery Designs

Elven-cuff-bangle

I have been playing around deciding where to take my jewellery designing to next. Dabbling in Tribal and Nomadic inspired pieces (which I am still planning to expand on), I have also made some new cuff bracelet designs that have turned out very Medieval in looks.

I just love sitting with a roll of wire in front of the TV and seeing what happens next. These bracelets were actually the result of me trying to make some wire bowls for a show next year! However, I soon realised that the method I was using wasn’t going to work and a quick rethink and tweeking resulted in a cuff bracelet. As  it turns out, the design I made is very comfortable to wear. I own a Tibetan Silver Cuff that I really love but find it a little uncomfortable as the metal is so rigid and the cuff is quite wide. The soft wire in this design seems to mould to your wrist and is extremely lightweight.

The Lapis Lazuli beads only arrived recently and although I may not know where my designs are heading, I do know that I want to bring a new  palette of colours to my work. The deep blue colour of these stones has given a real depth and richness to the copper which I never thought would work. The dark blue always reminds me of Middle Eastern and Moroccan mosaics and definitely add a touch of the ‘exotic’ to the pieces.
