I had looked and looked at her work and just couldn't figure out how she achieved such a beautiful even finish - it was soon revealed! Not a tutorial for beginners I would say (in case you're looking at purchasing it), Yael Falk aka Yoola is from Israel and while her English is very good and the pictures are clear, some things take a little reading between the lines and previous experience to master.
This was my 1st attempt and not perfect but loads of fun! Easily the most comfortable bracelet I have ever worn too! I'm now onto my 2nd try in a divine deep 'kelly green' colour. I won't have enough wire to make a bracelet so am considering using it as a central feature in a necklace ... we'll see how it develops :).
Next, I'm going to look at how I can embellish this style of bracelet with freshwater pearls and crystals, maybe even a 'smidge' of paua :)
I'm also super excited about creating with these gorgeous beads made by New Zealand lampwork artist Bobbie Pene ... aren't they beautiful? I couldn't resist them when I was cruising her website recently during her annual spring sale and just had to have!
I have one of the beads in mind for a creation for a friend as they are totally 'her' colours. She'll read this, I wonder if she'll guess?!!
