Week 26-Brass Bangle


My friend, Rodene, and I went to the Gem and Lapidary Wholesaler's show in Livonia last Friday. Let me tell you, that was an exercise in self restraint. Although I hadn't yet worked in brass, I fell in love with this Tibetan naga shell bead and the diamond cut brass beads and even better, they were in my budget. This turned out a little small for my wrist hence the longish clasp. I'm still trying to decide whether to age the brass on this or not. Opinions?
