I have to admit. Once you start working with the new Wrappers at John Bead you get a little distracted. Yesterday was all about the wrappers!
I kept looking through my stash to see which of my beads would look great in these wrapper frames.
Once my wrappers were done….I decided I might as well make up the bracelet to showcase them. This seems very Egyptian to me.
Inspiration was only a blog link away. Look at the wrappers used on Fernando Dasilva’s bracelet. (I want to try the horseshoe shaped wrappers next!) Fernando always does something different than expected.
Then I spotted this necklace on Fernando’s site! I recognized the shapes but didn’t know where he got those crystal encrusted beads. Then I read his post. He pressed clay into the wrappers! Brilliant!!!
So, even though I had many many other projects to work on, I just had to pull out my Apoxie Sculpt clay to see what I could come up with.
Working on a non stick surface, I pushed some white clay into place. (I have posted about Apoxie Sculpt many times. You can check those posts for more information.)

The wrappers are now solid. I could still add a little wire to them.
But I think I will leave them as is. They are very unique and special already.
