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...'
