Will You Be A Winner




I made this little bracelet using some of my cast pewter buttons. I was inspired by the button jewelry of Lorelei Eurto, and I wanted to play with the ideas using some of the pewter I've cast.

Someone asked me recently whether there's any lead in the pewter I use, and there absolutely is no lead. I make sure when I'm mixing the metals to make the alloy - no lead allowed.





The bracelet is fun to wear, it jingles a little when you move. This bracelet is the object of the giveaway from yesterday's post - so if you answer the question there you might win this bracelet.




I used wire wrapping to connect the links, then I patinaed it all and used the buffer to polish it. It has a very ancient look, like it might have been part of a treasure trove found in an archeological dig somewhere exotic.


Does this giveaway bracelet inspire you to post a reply to yesterday's question and enter the running to win it?

I hope so, I really need your answers.
