I recently received my second DT package of supplies and it was filled with amazing products that I haven't used before and I couldn't wait to combine some of them in to a project to share with you.
I decided to make some Boho style brackets perfect to wear at festivals.
I started by cutting a piece of Tyvek Heavyweight paper in half
I coloured one half with Copper Aztec Metallic paint
and the other half with Burnt Sienna Brusho powder and Brusho shimmer sprays in Copper and brusho acrylic spray in charcoal.
I cut the Tvyek into 1" x 4" strips. I then rolled one piece around a thin piece of metal wire and pinned the end in place.
I used a heat gun to melt the Tyvek, this adds texture to the bead and brings the shimmer to life.
Next I used a piece of Lutradur which I coloured with Charcoal brusho spray and a piece of the coloured Tyvek and rolled them in the same way as the last bead.
Once heated this is what it looked like, I was just experimenting and trying to create different shapes and texture.
I made several beads in varying sizes.
I coloured some string with Charcol brusho spray and then added some copper Aztec Metallic paint, I set this aside to dry.
I threaded the beads onto a piece of jewellery wire which was attached to a t bar/toggle and ring finding.
In the spaces between the beads I added some of the string, I tied it to the wire.
You can add as many or as few as you like.
I had enough beads to create 2 bracelets, I decided not to add the string to this one.
And here's the finished bracelets being modelled by my daughter. There's a real organic feel to these and that's probably why I like them so much.
Thank you for taking the time to stop by today, I'd love to know what you think of my project in the comments below.
