Twisty wrist cuff- New and improved

Just finished this cuff. I have made some pieces like this in the past, but felt there were some technical kinks that I had to work out. This one wraps around the wrist 1 1/2 times, and the frame is made with a heavier gauge sterling silver wire than in the past. Rather than being joined by twisting the heavy gauge wire frame, I created a connector using silver with jade and glass beads. The tension between the beaded fabric and the connector works just right. One interesting fact about this cuff- I worked on the patterned peyote band while at various shows between Baltimore, Texas and Kansas City. It’s a travelogue kind of piece, with postage stamp vignettes from each city.
