From the earth to the sky
This organic style of wire wrapping has intrigued me for a long time. When I wrapped the amazonite in this piece with sterling silver lace, it just seemed to want to be part of a larger setting. So I experimented with copper wire, letting it flow over and under the lace-wrapped stones, and finished the back of the cuff with a coiled basket weave stitch. This bracelet sits low on the wrist and comes down over the back of the hand. It is very dramatic, but also very comfortable to wear.
