Mardi Bugs

Posted by juliesjewels on March 13, 2009

I’m sure you have heard of the Mardi Gras – well this is the ‘Mardi Bugs’

This bracelet was inspired by the following Inspiration photo

Such a colorful photo needed something just as bright and happy and all I had were a ‘buggy’ pack of buttons – so….

I created this three strand memory wire bracelet, the masks look a little ‘buggy’ don”t they –  Butterflies or something…

All the strands were seperate and I joined them together with a three way bar connector.  This was one of the most fiddly things I have ever created. 

It is now in the possession of my youngest daughter – Jacinda, I asked her to try it on so I could see how it looked and she loved it.  So I gave it to her.  She hasn’t taken it off yet.
