A few years ago, while in Oregon, I learned about a place called Willie's.........a store full of creative goodness. Well I visited and bought a bunch of stuff including some resistors. I put them away and then couldn't find them........came back to Arizona and they were still MIA until just a couple months ago when we caught up with each other again.
I poured them out in one of the red wagons so you could get a view of them. They come in all different shapes and colors. A lot of them have wires at both ends and some of them have two wires at one end. As to what they really do in the real world, I don't have a clue and really don't care. All I know is that I could use them in my art world.
Then I thought I would quickly make up a bracelet or two. On the first bracelet, I added some of my things to it like monopoly game pieces, a watch face, a hand, eye glasses, shoes, some bead danglies I made and the resistors. I put the resistors on first and I just secured them directly to the bracelet doing a wire wrap right onto the link of the bracelet. Then I added the other stuff with jump rings.
I then made a bracelet with just the resistors and all of them were added directly to the links of the bracelet. I put one on each link.......no jump rings on this piece.
So that's what I did this morning which was a lot of fun. And it was a quick little project.
Check out Sherry Goodloe's blog because she is having a weekend giveaway. I loved the necklaces she did and posted about earlier. Now she is giving away a bracelet of the same style for a Weekend Giveaway. She is a wonderful mixed media artist.
