Conversation Bangles

This past holiday season I debuted my 'conversation bangles', and they were a hit. It was interesting to see that these bangles appealed to a wide range of age groups from middle school girls to late 60's-ish grandmothers. I choose text that has meaning for me and apparently has meaning for many others as well.

I worked on these bangles last night, preparing them to bring to the Woodmere Art Museum gift shop in Chestnut Hill. One revision from my earlier bangles is that I have soldered brass 'nubs' onto the side that I have stamped. Even though it's a simple addition, I like that little bit of dimension that is added by the nubs. Tonight's goal includes final cleaning of these. While those nubs are a nice feature, they're a pain to clean!

My favorite?......'BLAH BLAH BLAH...'

  1. Ooh, I can see why so many people are taken with those! Simple and classic, with text that's meaningful for the wearer (ha, or "blah blah blah") -- what's not to love?
