New Recycled Jewelry Contest

This is the last of the series of bracelets I made last week. Someone said that it looks Gothic but I think it is rather tribal. To make this bracelet I again started with a cardboard ribbon spool, then wrapped it in layers and layers of electrical tape. I intentionally wrapped it heavier on one side than the other to give it a slight asymmetrical look as well as to accommodate the copper wire.

I'm hoping to maybe make a few more while I am on holiday at the beach next week or at least gather some new materials for some new pieces. I wonder what I will find. I so hope I get my hands on some horseshoe crab tails that have washed up on the beach as they would make lovely elements for a necklace.

New Jewelry Giveaway Details: 

For this contest I will be giving away one of my cable-tie bangle bracelets to a person who leaves a comment on blog about one of the pieces I blogged about this week, June 6th, June 7th or today. Leave a comment about any of these bracelets telling me what you like about them, what you would wear it with, where you would wear it or a suggestion on how they could be made differently. The person who leaves a sincere constructive comment will win. I will announce the winner on June 23rd. Due to all comments being moderated before being published to my blog they will not be published to my blog until the 18th or 19th June when I return from holiday.

Thanx and good luck!
