Another cuff with Crossed Wires


About this design:

This is another cuff bracelet made with horizontal wires woven through vertical wires. The first wire going across was fairly easy to weave but the second one was a pain in the patoot! It is a bit wider than I usually make but it gives more room to weave. Another fun confetti cuff!

I didn't notice the little tail of wire until after I photographed the cuff.

Components:

14ga and 24ga wire, various stones, pearls, Czech glass, coral

    This looks colorful and fun. But hard to do. I’d probably stab myself a million times with the wire.

    I am a sucker for the carnival confetti look with copper! Love the mix of colors, types, shapes, sizes , and combined with the copper to ground the whole thing. I likey!

    Thanks Ladies. These confetti cuffs are happy bracelets that can brighten any day. :)

    Deb, you don’t have to worry about stabbing yourself. The biggest worry is keeping the kinks out of the fine wire.

    Becky, my finger tips tough! You need to develop calluses on your finger tips, too. Wire artists are tough and strong. Does Village Blacksmith ring a bell? :D (clang, clang)
