paper bangle prototype

paper bangle prototype, originally uploaded by effemera.

A new bangle design that I came up with when i was poorly with a very nasty cold.I am pleased with it although this is just a prototype done with pretty poor quality paper that doesnt seem to stand up to the test of wearing.Last time I put it on a section dropped off,wasnt really suprised though it was the scrap book paper which comes in really nice colours but is just not very durable.
It made a nice colourful change from books and the texture of the paper was lovely,almost felt like,a bit dissapoined really but shall try again.
It is odd though how some of my favourite experiments are achieved when I am either ill or very tired,maybe its because I dont feel upto getting serious when I am not feeling great so dont put any pressure on myself to produce and just get into mindless fiddeling.


  1. OMG this is BRILLIANT! Want to swap something once you have worked out the kinks?

  2. Hi Heather,thanks for looking at my blog.
    Would love to do a swap or something,but yes I will have to source some better quality paper first.Its a pity really as it will mean that I shall have to order from further afield than Macclesfield,I do like to buy my materials as locally as possible.

  3. Just found your blog via Ann Martin - this is fabulous! Hope you manage to source some more durable paper, as I'm sure this idea has great potential!
