Good Morning!
When I was in Peru, a guy showed me how to make this jewelry with metal wire. So I bought all the material (the wire, pliers and little stones) to make it.

That's the material:


My first attempts at making stuff out of this were absolutely unsuccessful but after a little practice I made my first earrings:


This summer I also made matching earrings and ankle bracelet but I haven't taken pictures of these yet, but they're coming soon.

Passed friday, I made this bracelet that I'm really proud of (it took me about 5 hours to make all the small parts and assemble them:

and here's a close-up of the details:



Please, tell me what you think!

These are gorgeous.  You have the patience of a Saint, I think.  And my hands hurt just looking at all of this detailed work.

It's also a lovely thought that someone in another country took his time to share his art and how he made it with you, and then on to us.  That is what I truly about love about the arts and crafting.

Not too much because there's a slit on the side of the stones, so you just wrap the wire around.  Smiley

Beautiful work! Looks like it took a lot longer than 5 hours!

My dad bought me a peruvian-style necklace years ago, and a couple weeks ago I picked it up and really looked at it with a crafters eye. This is my first attempt to duplicate some of the components. And may I just say that braiding wire is really weird! Grin
