Bone Weave Cuff

Ok - time for another World of Warcraft reference! Ok - in warcraft there is the good guys (alliance) and bad guys (horde). The bad guys are made up of orcs, undead, trolls, taurens, and the wickedly beautiful blood elves. I can SO see this wonderful bone cuff dangling from a wicked blood elf warlock's hand - having carefully woven it out of the bones of those she vanquished! I know so many wild gamer women that would love to have this dangling darkly from their wrist - how clever! This wonderful creation is made by Claire Maunsell of Stillpointworks out of polymer clay for the PCAGOE April fabric challenge. Claire's shop is filled with wonderful beads, earrings, and pendants - all exceeding unique with a strong organic feel to them. Like this bracelet - organic, but with a twist. See more of Claire's work in her ETSY store or visit her blog at http://stillpointworks.blogspot.com.

Claire's wonderful cuff bracelet is the 5th item I've featured in the ongoing PCAGOE April Challenge vote. Voting continues today through April 7 and if you haven't voted you can vote HERE for a chance to win a beautiful prize donated by PCAGOE's talented members.


Slice, slice, slice .....decorate, decorate, decorate.....roll, smooth, roll, smooth....bake.........sand, sand, sand, sand, sand, sand, sand, sand.... Sound familiar to anyone? But lookie at the goodies I got to show. These are trial pieces - first runs to see how many pieces I need to stack together and what sizes to make a larger cane that can be slices and placed in a single piece. Let's just say they're my rough drafts - even for all the sanding. I am very happy with the overall look of the patterning though, so I'm excited about how it will all come together. I have more similar pieces that I will be working on for additional schools and more 'rough drafts' of other trial pieces yet to come! Let me know if you have any ideas or suggestions!

  1. The bracelet is so intriguing. I love the way the artist has focused on the structure of the piece. It is almost skeletal and really quite architectural looking.

  2. Isn't it fun! Someone is going to fall in love with it and snatch it up like a treasure for their dark outfit. =)
