Wanting to carry the spirit of love and joy from the holidays forward with me to start 2012, I've been creating a lot of "love" jewelry.
I made my sister this necklace and ring set:
I was inspired to make a cuff for myself as well:-)
I used soft thick floral wire I found in the gardening section of Michaels:
I first made an oversized "love" charm and twisted/rounded the ends of the wire using round nose pliers. I created a "cuff" piece by folding over a long piece of wire, shaping it, then attaching each free end to the top and bottom of the letter "l" respectively (using pliers). Then I shaped the combined piece into a curved cuff. The finishing piece is a smaller section of doubled up wire, fashioned into a hook, attached at one end to the letter "e" with the hooked end free to latch on to the other end of the cuff piece. Very simple!
Spread the love!
