Variations On A Theme... and then some.

Ok, ok, I know it's been waaay too long since I've posted anything. Waaaaay too long. It's been a hard winter for me... lots of fibromyalgia pain... and a lot of drawing within, which is only right for this time of year, I guess. But I'm slowly coming out of my... hehe... shell...

Yes, at last, a new piece for the BioBangle series. I call it "Shells." Below is a detail, where I hope you can see the white areas are actually faux... um... well... shell.

This form is similar to the Bamboo BioBangle, only less ridges (and a bit easier to make).

There will be a few more new BioBangles coming soon, but I wanted to share with you a new bangle series that I'm making for my Etsy shop and for wholesale... simple polymer inlay into polished brass bangles...
I only have a few up on my Etsy shop, but I'm gearing up to photograph more and get them added to the shop soon... so stay tuned.
And, for those who - like me - love the weird and beautiful in Nature...

This beautiful *cough* little baby is the latest addition to the Detroit Zoo. If you haven't figured out what type of animal it is... well, it's an aardvark. But I call it "Eeyore meets Piglet." And I want one!

Oh my god - so great to finally hear from you again my dear friend. I missed you! Hope your fibromyalgia is getting better as temperature rises.
Your new Bibangle is terrific (as always) and I also love the simple bangles - sure looks great if worn in groups of three or four.

love
Bettina

I love the new Biobangle! The simple bangles are wonderful too..great patterns. I would like that aardvark too...wonder if he'd get too big to sleep on the bed?

Beautiful work, Melanie. I esp. love the dreamy motifs in the Etsy bangle picture.

And the Aardvark is so ugly he's cute.

I admire your work, it's so creative and colourful! the shape of your BioBangles is perfect.. I'm a great fan from the other side of the ocean, and I also think that nature is such a big source of inspiration!
This little animal is so strange but cute!

Amazing and beautiful your bangles!
Fantastic work!

I love your bracelets. You say to coat the aluminum blank with a thin layer of Sobo glue. I can't even get past that step. The glue keeps contracting and makes holes in the layer of glue on the blank. Any suggestions?
