'Rushes' cuff - vintage Candy Spender!
I made this about six years ago out of a couple of vintage necklaces from the sixties..the colours just hit a spot in me. I wired them onto one of those stretchy stainless steel rah rah cuffs (which sort of look like old fashioned watch bands), along with some shiny gold-plated German box chain offcuts. The tiny green beads were beautiful glass seed beads, which I found in an old metal lolly box.
I sold this as soon as I'd finished it, and I'm glad I took this picture, because it still inspires me..the beads, the colours, the idea...
