A "Less is More" approach

   I didn’t spend my day crafting yesterday. I’d like to say it was because I had too many other things to do.
   Oh I have great ideas and intentions, but the overcast day yesterday zapped me of energy for most of the day. I finally managed to get into the Creative Cave around 3 p.m. to make a wire-wrapped cuff bracelet. The beads I used for this bracelet are some of the great finds I made recently at a thrift store outing with Jules.

   I never know when I make each bracelet how each one will turn out. I usually just start wrapping wire and see what happens. About the only thing I know ahead of crafting each bracelet is what kind of center bead I want to use. The rest of the bracelet falls into place as I wrap the wire.
   I decided to go with the thought that “less is more” when making this bracelet. I like the appearance of the exposed wrapped wire around each side of the bracelet. With other wire-wrapped cuffs I have put as many beads as possible on the bracelet.
