Reveal Day for the Wrapped, Stacked & Layered Challenge.
If you are new, read this post to see how this challenge started & the guidelines for creating bracelet stacks.
I’m excited to share with you almost 80 different bracelet makers who have wrapped, stacked and layered bracelets with incredible enthusiasm. You will see many different styles represented from jewelry making hobbyists and crafters to full time artists and jewelry designers located around the United States and abroad. Click on the links below to visit their blogs, Pinterest boards and gallery pages to see their creations.
Thank you to all the participants for creating your bracelets, styling them, stacking them, photographing them and posting for everyone to see. Your work is greatly appreciated.
I’ll get us started with a few of my favorite stacks!
Top to bottom: 1. Delicate brass bangle I created with an artisan sterling silver flower wire wrapped on the sides. 2. Shell and wood stretch bracelet that a friend gave me years ago when she returned from a tropical vacation. 3. Sterling silver link chain I purchased at a recent bead show where I added a large silver toggle to wear as a bracelet layering piece. 4. Double wrap sterling silver nugget bracelet with faceted electroplated black and gold beads. This is a current favorite bracelet that layers well with many things.
Top to bottom: 1. Ugandan paper beads on memory wire with silver spacers. 2. Upcycled leather bracelet with brass chain and faceted pyrite beads. 3. Ruby impression jasper stretch bracelet with chocolate brown cotton cord and silver nugget accents. I’m not sure I’d wear them all together in reality, but it made for a colorful stack to photograph!
Top to bottom: 1. Upcycled leather strap bracelet with textured, patinated copper disc. 2. Artisan Sterling silver and copper rivet cuff bracelet made by well known artist Gail Golden. 3. Woven shamballa style bracelet with faceted agates and button closure.
Top to bottom: 1. Braided leather cord with fresh water pearls and hand forged button. 2. Reverse stitch beaded wrap bracelet with faceted agates. 3. Reverse stitch beaded wrap bracelet with faceted brass beads. Do you see the tape I used to help keep this stack straight to photograph? Oops! : )
I am going to pick a winner from the list of participants to receive a brand new video tutorial I am completing where I will take you step-by-step with me as I show you how to make the reverse stitch, beaded wrap bracelets in the picture above. It is a totally new and different technique than the usual ladder stitch wrap bracelet! It will a part of a new video workshop series I am working on. I will announce the winner in an upcoming post and a 2nd giveaway opportunity. But more on that soon!
