Cuff bracelet

I made a cuff bracelet for the first time. I've been thinking about the design and construction for a while but didn't have the courage to actually pick up my torch and start creating one lest it ended up in the discard pile, like a lot of my metalwork attempts. But on Sunday I spent the whole afternoon at my workbench, and this is one of the fruits of my labor. My sister has been bugging me to name a piece after Star Trek's Uhura, but I've been waiting until I made something sufficiently funky and sassy and space age-y. I think this one finally looks like an Uhura, doesn't it?

If I lived closer to you, you would be my supplier of jewelry.
This one is simply stunning; simple and elegant. Gorgeous!

Spectacular, Hazel...a truly outstanding creation--I LOVE it! I thrill to this kind of elegant simplicity. Fantastic job! Was it difficult to get such a neat join with the circles? :o) Happy Day ((HUGS))

Thanks, Tracy! Yes, it was a bit tricky to get the join, it still isn't as clean as I would like, but hopefully with more practice I'll get the hang of it!

Hey Sarah, yes, it has the same basic design as your earrings, with the circles!
