My “I Can’t Sleep Bracelet”!

Oh my life, this is what happens when I can’t sleep at night …. or perhaps this is what I get up to when I am actually sleep crafting!!!

…. and if I was in the USA my name would be firmly down for one of Debora Mauser’s classes    http://www.wire-sculpture.com/jewelry-making-blog/8585/debora-mauser-classes/

Talk about going from the sublime to the ridiculous! In my head, at 2 o’clock in the morning,  if I used a Primark bangle as a base and wrapped wire and beads around it , it would come out looking like a wild woman bracelet!!!

I'd never heard of sleep crafting before. Whatever you do, don't search for a cure - I love the results!

Hi Helen. Great bracelets, especially if you made them in your sleep : ) Love the metal wild woman bracelets, off to have a look at the site. Take care.

Well I think it looks fab! I can think of several people who would very much wear it!
