Well this Minlet belongs to me, Yours Truly. Been wearing it for many months now.
One of the first, before I even call them Minlet. A bit of variation where Garnet (my birthstone :)) and Amethyst beads is wire wrapped close to the clasp.
Today's wire wrapped Minlet is Romantic.
Simply because the stone I used for this Minlet is Rose Quartz, the Love Stone as it is commonly known.
It has found its owner recently.
I am not very good at naming my wire jewelry creations so took me a while to name this bracelet collection. This is a very minima or minimum designed wire wrap bracelet.
Just the way I like it and am sure a number of you also have the same preference *wink*.
So, the word minima, minimum, minimal or min must be in the name. Not forgetting the "bracelet" word as well. First, I was going to name it "Min'm Bracelet" but I think it is kind of long. Then I shortened it to "Min'mLet". I like this name but is a bit of a tongue twister and I don't want to get your tongue entangled and twisted just trying to mention the name.
Finally decided on naming it simply Minlet (Minimum + Bracelet).
So, here goes the first batch of Minlet by WireBliss - Bubbly and Vivacious because they now belonged to two bubbly and vivacious girls.
Ah...so many names for a festival.
There are many ways to wire wrap hook/clasp on cord ends or leather ends. If you google for it, here are the list of pages available. Some are on youtube while others are pictorial.
My wire wrapped clasp on cord ends is based on 123Bead's tutorial with modification to the basic wire hook to a pipa hook instead.
The "difficult" part of this project is to hold several cord ends together at one time.
Kind of tricky but manageable.
Remember my posting about Siniawan Bazaar back in June? - click the link.
At that time, we were there during the day and most shops were closed and hardly anyone was around.
We went back one July evening and look what this sleepy bazaar transform into at night.
▼We arrived around 5.50pm but parking at the back of this row of shophouses were already almost full. We walked along the stretch of road full of tables and chairs. Some were occupied with customers while some were still setting up.
Completed these dangle earrings last weekend.
These are quick and easy projects. About an hour of your time is sufficient.
Except for the roses which are ceramic, the rest are glass beads including Millefiori glass beads.
Happy viewing :)
