Project and Sample by Kate Richbourg

Shiny and bright like a brand new penny, this bracelet is the perfect project to start the new year off with. Kate’s trademark design elements are on display in this piece: mixed metals, beautiful color palettes, and some wirework, of course!
A fun and easy piece that incorporates several techniques, this is a great year-in-review to go over all we have learned together this year! Wire wrapping, crimping on Soft Flex, palleting, and patterning… It’s all here!
Check out our recipe page to create a design in colors you choose, too!
Be sure to watch Kate and Emily string away on Facebook LIVE December 28, 2017, or watch the rebroadcast above.
