I have to admit - this song blasted in my head the entire time I made these spinner bangles.
Not my first (second or third, for that matter) choice of music - I am more of a Hard Rock and Country kinda gal. But, I was 25 years old when that song came out and I hate to admit it, but I remember it quite well! :)
Okay - enough of that! I am feeling accomplished these past few days, as I completed several spinner style bangles! It finally clicked, and I found "the sweet spot" on the steel stakes, and I just could not stop!
Here are the first two spinners - naked copper and all!
I much prefer the patina versions...
Two are very wide - two are slightly smaller. Big difference when creating and hammering the metal. I myself prefer the textured over the smooth bangles.
You will notice in the Group picture above that one of the bangles does not fit the category of Spinner Bangles. I mentioned in my last post the jewelry artist Soham Harrison. He has many You-Tube videos on specific techniques (simply Google his name - he will show up)! I took one of those techniques and altered it ever so slightly.
This technique look a lot easier on his video, but I used 10 gauge copper. Though forged and annealed, it was an intense few moments wrapping it! I love the focal it creates.
Sadly, I have not touched a single bead in ages...AGES. I have been enveloped in metal....I miss my beads and must get back to incorporating them....sooner rather than later!
I cannot believe it is Thursday already. I am not sure where this week has gone!
Thank you so much for stopping by - have a wonderful rest of the week!
