I have covered over half of this wristband with beads no less than 4 times, being very unhappy with the overall look. I had to get my head in the game and knuckle down - one more rip-out and the interfacing would disintegrate.
So I did.
Getting the feel of steam punk is much harder than you think, for when someone does it wrong, it's usually horridly wrong - just google steampunk jewelry to find multiple examples of the bad stuff. But when they get it right, it is elegance itself - check out Aranwen on Etsy to see what I mean.
But I digress. I should have Asa's wristband completed by the end of the day tomorrow; then the Next Big Project begins.
Slowly I am coming to an understanding of the Secrets of Rusty Things.
