Silver Sensation


About this design:

Another coiled bangle!
This one in sterling silver.

It's a lot harder to wrap 20ga silver than 26ga copper!

Components:

14ga and 20ga sterling silver, bali bead, brushed silver beads, 6mm "daisies"

    I really like this, simplistic & elegant looking. Very well done.

    * Just a thought; I know that when you’re going to coil that much wire sometimes using a “wire worker” makes it so much simpler. Not sure if you’re already doing this or not. It helps to coil wire in all kinds of shapes and different sizes and then you can just add them to your designs.

    Thank you ladies!
    Celtic Crossing – Actually – I’m not familiar with a “wire worker”. I do my coiling by hand.
    ouch ;)

    I’m thinking it’s probably similar to my jump ring maker, but my mandrels are too big for the bangle.

    Here’s brief directions -
    paraphrased from “the best of step by step wire jewelry) I think I might need a subscription – LOL

    12″ of 14ga (16 will work too)wire for the base. Wrap 2″ 20ga. add your beads. another 2″ of coiled wire, center beads, add spacers on either side, and 1″ coils, roll up the ends.
    They recommend hammering to harden.
    oh – they also suggest soft wire.

    The Wire Worker is from “Artistic Wire”, it’s a bunch of different size & shape “mandrels” that you plug into a handle, then just turn & away you go. Which makes things a little more easy on the hands.

    Thank you Martha and Sarah!

    Celtic Crossing – I checked out the wire worker and it is very similar to my jump ring maker. Except that my smallest mandrel is 4mm, which would be too big for this design.
    thanks for the info- I’ll have to look into it.

    I’m really liking this one … And those silver beads have me drooling over here.

    You might want to look into getting a Coiling Gizmo … will do smaller than 4mm. :-) SLS
