The expo visitor said she had shown her sketch to various jewellers but had not been successful in getting someone to test her design. She wanted the bracelet to be made from aged brass - not too shiny. The design reminded me a little of my leaf-spoons and leaf letter openers but with more curve. I agreed to see if I could turn the sketch into a bracelet once I had a measurement for the woman's wrist.
As you can see from the photos that follow I made two bracelet forms with a squarish bridging area.
