Art Couture Assemblage Cuff; Winter Snowball Figurine Bracelet
Don’t let the cherubic face fool you – one hand welds a winter scepter while behind the back in a be-mittened hand is a snowball with YOUR name on it!
BTW, While the piece usually tells me when it’s done, occasionally, at a later date, I find something that “just needs to go in that spot” to enhance it – this piece is one of those that had more details added – BETTER than PICTURED.
There is an old marble that manages to even look icy between the mukluks. Other elements: vintage rhinestone pin and earring snowflakes, crystallized looking plastic beads, and a double braid trim around the parka hood, pucha shells imitate tiny chunks of ice marching around the edge of the cuff. Black and silver micro glass comprise the caviar paste I use for finish work.
While it is wearable, the height makes it more of a decorative mini sculpture for your amusement and delight!
So, what is caviar? I use tiny glass beads to make a caviar paste to hide any glue, unsightly findings, and in general enhance and strengthen the piece. It is something that takes extra time, and materials, but is the difference between ordinary and SPECTACULAR! Kind of like the difference between a snow fort and an ice castle; refrigerator art and a painting by a master! I think you get the picture…
