underthemountain suggested this in a the challenge post I made yesterday, for some interchangeable cuffs I made



She came up with the idea of making the decorated central plates as the swap idea, with participants making their own cuff to their own size (the first cuff, being quite open in the middle, could be an easy one to make), and having a standardized plate size - it would be a great way of expanding your accessories without taking as much space, and a great way of getting some cool pieces you may otherwise not think of - stamped metal, etched metal, leather, fabric, etc.

Anyone else interested in trying this out?

Woohoo!  I think this would be loads of fun!!  I love Onyx's idea of making an interchangeable cuff and I think it would be so much fun to swap different inserts!!  Hope others want to join in the fun!

I like the idea! But I can't work with metal. Fabric yes, leather probably too.
But if it is only the three of us? I thought more people were interested?!


Anyway, I like it and I voted for you in the challenge because I think this idea rocks!  Smiley

It doesn't have to be metal - it could be things like plastic, resin, polymer clay, fabric, leather, wool, wood, paper, found objects, recycled goods - just about anything that could be worn.  I get very inspired by projects put out in magazines like Belle Armoire, Belle Armoire Jewelry, Jewelry Affaire, Altered Couture, Cloth Paper Scissors, and the like, and how they use different materials. 

If you are interested, we could do a three - way swap if Roxanne is willing. 

Unless of course anyone else is interested - wink wink, nudge nudge to the world at large?
