Braided cuff - week 21

Week 21s theme was 'I love star wars', but I didn't really have time to work on something for the theme; I made this piece a couple of weeks ago anticipating I wasn't going to have time after coming back from Tucson. This is my first attempt at a braided cuff. It was actually easier than I thought; 1/2 round and twisted sterling wire were braided together. The challenge was the ends, I wasn't realy sure what to do with them, lol! I made an oval and tucked the ends in, but it isn't very clean. I need to find another way before I do another; an option is to solder, but a torch and I are not friends. I wasn't unhappy with this other than the ends, and its a little big!
