Asian Cherry Blossoms Bracelet

Posted on | June 13, 2012 | 6 Comments

When I opened my shipment from ICE Resin® this spring, and saw this ribbon and bezel, my creative muse immediately thought “Asian – Cherry blossoms!”

It is funny to me how the minds of those of us who enjoy the creative process work sometimes – we just envision something in our my mind’s eye and then work diligently to bring it to reality.

I set a strip of text paper from the ART Mechanique Belles Dames Francaise flip book  into the warm yellow bronze, long rectangular stick bezel.  I took bits of pink Makin’s Clay® (www.makinsclay.com) from the Earth Tones set, hand rolled the bits flat and free-form moldedthe flat piece into tiny cherry blossoms, that I then accented a touch with Jacquard Lumiere pearlescent magenta paint (www.jacquardproducts.com)  for a bit of contrast and shimmer. I mounted the dry blossoms onto a real twig to emulate a cherry tree branch in early spring.  I mounted the flowering branch inside the bezel and a light layer of ICE Resin® sealed it in place. I chose not to fill the bezel completely as I wanted the texture of the twig and the flowers to be evident in the finished piece.

For the accents on either side of the bezel I stitched Asian coins into place.  A toggle closure finished the piece.

I simply tied the beautiful ribbons from the ART Mechanique collection to the rings on the bezel, and then knotted behind the bezel, with the tails left long for added interest.
