Twisting Spring Bracelet


About this design:

I am so grateful for all the encouragement and tips from everyone on this site and gallery. I've learn some much from the beaders on this site. Thanks again to everyone who has provided tips directly, and those whose wire work inspired me to give it a go myself.

As I was making the springs that I used in the necklace I posted I noted some were forming twisting spiral-like shapes that I thought were cool.

I made the clasp, and I used copper wire to make the cloisonne charms for the bracelet.

Components:

brass wire, copper wire, copper coated jump rings, cloisonne beads, crystal beads (LB), freshwater pearls, platinum shell pearls (LB)

    Thanks, Nancy! I’ve been having fun with it–it’s great to when you’ve had a long day to just twist away on the metal. ;)
