Some New bangles.

Yeah...more bangles.
Making these are like knitting to me...
when I am stuck I go to the bangles to free me up...
I don’t have to think too hard ...just create and play...
add and subtract...I know how they will turn out (basically) and
the problem solving is I am still working
without busting my brain apart trying to figure something out.

I’m working on new techniques and I have
to say...they are rockin my old standards.

What’s different?  The wrappage for one...
What I am aiming for is a bracelet that really looks
and feels like it came from some remote tribe
with not many tools and not a whole lot of things at
their disposal.  I wanted the wrapping to look thick,
like leather...old worn leather...used before but still
usable...I wanted more volume... more I 
wrapped it and then wrapped it again and then just
globbed on my secret potion of wax and scents and mojo.

It all started when I cleaned my workbench....I mean
really just swept the whole kit and caboodle into baking pans...
clean sweep...put those pans away and looked at just was left
in my table top “containers” and decided to work with what was
there in front of me...

I said to myself....use this stuff with it...manipulate
it into something else...
and use the beads you have...Got this zebra one from a
gift package/ exchange...can’t remember who but dang so
cool....Thanks to whoever...wish i had a pile of these...

and my ever continuing journey of messing around with picMonkey
and now using photobooth on the Mac to get these shots of how
the bangles look on...and designing my beatnheart t-shirt and
playing America’s top model without a head.

Well...blogger is not letting me add more pictures and gee wiz
you just can’t  fight it sometimes...
The Universe is telling me to get back to the work bench...
But all is’s hotter than hell
like 90 something but I’m feelin
good today...Husband is on his way
down the 405 South... from his LA Mid-town stu dee o...
maybe I can talk him into taking me out to dinner
cause i don’t wanna cook don’t make me no sinner
and after all it wouldn’t hurt if i ended up thinner...
(say that like you was (w)rapping...)
so peace out homies
till next time...

Yes, Blogger is acting wacky. It put my post up there twice so I trashed one.

Nice stuff, I was a-wondering what you were up-to lately.
Go to my blog if you need to cool down... yeah snow and the sound of chainsaws. Was 41 degrees in my studio, I got it warming up for me.

Nice to have a default mode that is so pleasing and is such a good bread & butter item for you in your shop.
It seems it can't help but keep on developing into something more wonderful with the time you're putting into them.

Hope you gets yer dinner too.

Your bangles are pretty, and peace out to you too.

I think you accomplished your goal, BEAUTIFULLY! These all DO look like they were made by some primitive tribe---yet, the are very sophisticated, too...!
You are having a good time, aren't you? GOOD FOR YOU! Art should be fun sometimes, don't you think?

I'm a sucker for the cream, ecru and bone colours. Love the waxed textiles, they definitely have a touch of Nomadic travelling.

They are great looking. I have always worn bangles, gave them away
because my hands got to big for them. Beautiful work. I can see them with tan,and brown suade
outfit, and boots.At that point Grey, almost color will work..

Your bangles always look so awesome and make me want to keep creating and coming up w/cool ones myself! I think you nailed the idea you had in your head - these are fabulous and look so rustic/tribal and like they were from long ago - love them!! I understand the heat delima - it's still pushing 100+ here in the AZ Desert. I'd say we could suffer together, but you're much closer to water (the ocean) than I am!! LOL!! :-)

The new blogger is bugging me. It's never right, the spacing is always off. They are trying to teach us patience, I think.!

I so get the tribal vibe with the bracelets but I also got a cool mermaid sitting on the beach vibe too! Fabulous!

Chris said...

Way way cool Cynthia~~So fun to see what you are creating. These have a primitive "presence". Love~

Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this blog. It's simple, yet effective.
A lot of times it's hard to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and visual appearance. I must say you've done a fantastic job with this.

Additionally, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Chrome.
Outstanding Blog!

What I am furious about is the fact that she didnt tell me and I had to find out from my hair stylist!
