Copper Link Bracelet


About this design:

18 gauge copper wire with hammer texturing

Components:

18 gauge copper wire, lobster clasp

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Cut equal lengths of wire, shape around a tool of your choice and size to create a rounded loop. Using the round nose pliers, shape into a circle on each end that is parallel to one another. Hammer the loop--will cause it to open slightly--pinch back together. When enough loops have been created to form the size of bracelet desired, connect the small loops with the larger, hammered areas of the components. Connect using a lobster clasp.
