Egyptian Coil Bracelet


About this design:

I finally got around to doing some wireworking. This Egyptian coil piece is my first effort at this sort of design. I purposely didn't cover the jaws of the pliers, as I wanted to add some facets, sparkle and texture to the wire. Let me know what you think!

Components:

16g copper wire...I also made the clasp and jumpring.

    Oh wow! Your hands must be mighty sore after doing all those spirals- with 16g wire, no less. Eye catching bracelet though and fantastic wire skills. This piece jumped right off the page. It would make a fantastic choker too!
