Red/Violet Wire Bracelet





I actually do not belong to any Red Hat group but I certainly do like the colors. The beads were made quite a while ago, but after purchasing the purple 20-gauge wire, I got inspired enough to make this funky, fun bracelet. I was following Connie Fox's video from her website to make all the wrapped loops and it was great. However, since I am sort of self-taught, I had to modify some of my habits and this bracelet has dings on the wire from my 'death-grip', especially the hook. I'm sure that in the future I will get better about this, but I'm not sweating it now. It's great to wear.

The bracelet looks lovely! I think it's aweful that we think of the red hat group as soon as we see that color combination. I saw a flower bed really, really nice last summer, with red and lilac and silvery stuff, I loved it, my second thought was of the group. :o)

Cindy... You are SO inspiring! I absolutely LOVE the work you are doing. I'm itching to get started. Found a fiber group down here that meets at a place called Wild Fibres. I hope to meet with them tomorrow night. I'll check in more often now that I have you marked as a favorite on my new computer!
Love ya!
