Optimism, positivity, mindfulness and love are mantras we all want to keep front and center in our lives. What better way to express those feelings than adding your own personal inspiration words and favorite colors to a bracelet you can wear as a daily reminder! We will hand cut a shape from 24 ga copper sheet from Parawire®, anneal it and hammer in a little texture and then stamp the words. We will secure that to a piece of leather as a backing. Charms or filigree will be riveted on and eyelets added for the ultra-suede connector. From there it’s all up to you! Pick an ultra-suede color and a Vintaj® color and the play time begins! We will be doing wire riveting, adding eyelets, and charms and dangles will be added with simple looping and wrapped loops and complete bracelet construction.
