Week #14 - Recycled Copper I.D. Bracelet - Madam Mod Makes

It's the time you've all be waiting for - the moment where I reveal the amazing Madam Mod Makes' contribution to the 52 weeks : 52 crafts project.  Cara has been busy making her item this week, but her work isn't finished because once the lucky winner is named, she'll have a little more work ahead of her as the item will be personalised by request.

This week's item is a gorgeous recycled copper i.d. bracelet (oooooh! our first jewellery item).

... and just in case your nearest and dearest are not Anna, Jono and Liam, Cara will personalise it just you with up to two lines of nine letters or less.

Cara makes her bracelets by hand using recycled copper pipe that she hammers down and flattens into the cuff shape.  Once she has the solid piece of flattened, squashed pipe, she smooths it out and polishes up with sandpaper just enough to get a smooth and polished, but vintage and unique piece.  As the orders roll in, get gets out her letter stamps and personalises them just for you.

Cara actually submitted a complete tutorial for publishing, so once the lucky winner is announced I just might post a final follow up post to her contribution to add to the growing collection of tutorials on this blog.  But you don't have to wait, as 100% of your bid on this item will go to Macmillan Cancer Support.

If you are as enchanted by the designs of Madam Mod Makes, please take a moment to visit her website, comment on this post, and (of course) "watch" the ebay auctions so that you'll be notified as the bids and competition to be the winner progresses.
