Week 4-Ayudhia Bangle




The tutorial for this bracelet is by Achmad Irfan, Borneo Pahlevi on Jewelrylessons.com. I bought this tutorial because I thought it was one of the most beautiful bracelets I'd ever seen. My plan was to make it in silver with a silver druzy center. But since there is almost an ounce of metal in this, I thought I'd better try it out in copper first and I'm so glad I did. First because my weaving needed some practice. It got better as I went along and you can tell by comparing the two sides. Secondly, the tutorial as written turned out too big for me so now I'll know to shorten it when I make it again. This one probably took me at least ten hours to make but, hopefully, it will go quicker the next time.
