Bird a Week #20 -- Treetop Silver Cuff

While I'm touring around Eastern Europe, I'm not at home working, but I left one new treasure behind that fit the theme.

This cuff was finished the week before I left, at least to the point that I could get it amidst all the packing and last minute minutiae. Early on I planned to add a second layer, either carved and colored faux bone or polymer clay, or maybe even enameled copper. I thought the pop of color would be exciting and the second material would add some much needed strength to an inherently weak silver clay bracelet. Alas, any such treatment will have to wait.

Now it's only a few more days untill I board the return flight. As much as I love traveling, I'm looking forward to being home with my own kitchen (not for long), my own bed and my own studio!


  1. It IS nice to come back home and resume what's important to us.

  2. Super piece, I love it :)

  3. This is gorgeous Vickie. I like it without anything else added to it. It is PMC pro or regular PMC?

  4. Thanks, Everyone! It's PMC3, which is why I was considering another layer for strength. I'd like to try in some other materials as well.
