After viewing the video the first thing I did was to try and find anything like it in images of contemporary jewelry and historical adornment. Again what I was looking for was not the design of the cuff but; the placement on the hand.
I would love to know if any of you have seen not only Kelli's jewelry but also have you seen wearing a cuff on the hand. I have to admit it's not a big leap to place a cuff there, in fact it much like a "slave bracelet," (really don't like that term).
So here's my first attempt to respond to the inspiration these images created with the work I'm showing here.

Great place for inspiration...here's one...Beginner Lesson Prototype Design | JewelryLessons.com
This is a new lesson for beginner weaving I am developing. I wanted to offer some classes for those just starting out and have never woven wire. This is a simple weave that looks more complicated than it is. It is also easy to customize it to be more of what you want, ie, make the hoops larger or smaller, use different beads to change the color, etc... Copper and turquoise is classic so that is why I chose these materials for the lesson but tomorrow I'll make a pair in silver and different beads.
I'd love to know your thoughts. All critiques are very welcome.
