Ribbon Wrap Bracelets

I hand make the slide focals for my bracelets in silver, copper and bronze. They are made from metal clay - metal particles in a binder. When the piece is fired in a kiln at very high temperatures, the binder burns away and the metal sinters - leaving pure and solid metal.

I love the flexibility the clay gives me. It's so much more malleable than hard sheet metal.

I don't make the silk myself but source it from Etsy from sellers who hand dye and sew them individually.

How to tie:

Silk care instructions

Hand wash in cold water and a drop of mild soap - like dish soap or baby shampoo.

Rinse silk in cold water until free of soap.

Roll up silk in tower to remove excess water. Hang on rack.

If you want a smooth ribbon iron on lowest setting while slightly damp.
