>>> This bracelet is made for a woman who likes red color and bold, statement jewelry. While it was not my intention, the end result came out somewhat ethnic/tribal, which is even better than I hoped :). All of the components are handmade, from brass wire in various gauges. As for beads, I used transparent round glass beads, seed beads and red coral beads. It is a very time consuming piece, it's not ready yet, but I had to check the camera look :). When I finish it, I'll put it on a display model and take one more shoot, so you can guess the size and proportions.

Multistructural Wire Necklace, Comb and Earrings - Multistrukturalni rad u žici: ogrlica, češljić i minđuše
>>> Here I am again writing about how much I wanted to make wire work like this, but was not sure how. I didn't even know how to search for eventual tutorial and which term to use - wire curling, complex wire work, multilayered wire jewelry? I checked a lot of videos available on internet, but nothing like that something I have had in my mind. I studied photos of other jewelry designers, mostly Russians, who seem to have natural talent for this kind of work, but I'm not sure if I figured out how they do it. I have had a lot of trials, but all came unsuccessful, with my wire all crooked up and asymmetric.
