Add A Clasp or Not Cuff Tutorial – Wire Working Techniques

 

[The third in my Bring It On!!: A Month of Challenging Elements Made SuperCool designs is AddAClaspOrNot Cuff! And the challenge element? The Leopard Head Clasp! Gosh! What a beautiful finding! I learned so much designing this cuff and the solution ended up being a new KISS Principal: Keep It (the design solution) Simple and Stiff! LOL! (We’ll keep it kind and leave the name-calling from the original version behind!) Good thing we’ve got the Live Broadcast to share more about the design and engineering process that made this challenge so, well, challenging!]
