METAL BRACELET:
This bracelet features embossing metal. Every once in a while I feel the need to "play" with a new technique or product...just to figure out how to use it. Or better yet, how I can use it in my art. I spent time trying different treatments on the embossing metal. These include the use of alcohol inks and a flame to color the metals. I also used an embossing tool to draw on the metal. Once I had a lot of metal samples, I started stitching my favorites onto a fabric base. I love the texture of the stitching of metal on fabric. This technique is currently being offered as an online class at www.joggles.com and is also available as a full day hands on class.
