Design Beginnings...

I am trying out ideas for a bracelet line that will feature fine (.999) hammered and textured silver bangles and links. The toggle clasps are also handmade using the fusing technique. I truly love shaping and texturing metal with nothing but a hammer, and then embellishing it with whatever strikes my fancy that day. Making ball-ended head pins is great fun, as well, and they are perfect for swirling around hammered links. These two bracelet design ideas will be done again when I get some heavier silver wire delivered. The 16g I currently have is just a bit tooo thin to get the look I'm going for here.
