YOJ Week 11 - Wavy colorful cuff

Full blast ahead, trying to catch up with the Year of Jewelry. I'm also preparing inventory for a show in May, one of my rare live shows during the year. This is a technique I haven't used for a while: the underlying frame is made of three wavy pieces of thicker wire. Thinner wire is then woven all over the frame with the beads. Goldfilled wire, vermeil beads and a variety of precious gemmy gems: citrine, tourmalines, amethysts, hessonite, etc.
