Copper Dreams Bracelet

About this design:

Here's the bracelet to match the earrings. Had to redo the dangle ~ I left it plain & it didn't look right so added a spiral (yes,I know!)


Rhodonite w/ Pyrite, 18g & 20g Copper wire

    You LEFT it PLAIN?!?!?! ROTFLOL Are you sure you’re Spiral Chick and not an imposter?

    Well, now that I take a closer look at this design, it does appear to have been done by Spiral Chick, so I guess that’s you!!! LOL What a fabulous design to go with those wonderful earrings that we can’t seem to stop admiring! :D Love the spirals, of course!

    I just love this bracelet…just as with the earrings, I love the coper with the color of the stone. Glad you put the spiral on the dangle…it wouldn’t look finished without it!
    BTW, that floor tile is a perfect background!

    You added a spiral…..which one was the added one? I see many excellent spirals and they are all sooooo good. Using the tile on your floor for a background reminded me I have tile left over from my bath remodel. They are nice big ones, 16″ X 16″. I think I’ll have a look at them… . .

    Thank you everyone :)
    Lynn ~ Yes I went mad & thought I’d leave the dangle bead PLAIN (steady on now), but it just didn’t look right so off it came!
    KH & Sali Jo ~ I don’t use a jig I make them with my own fair hands :) I did have a small,cheap jig a few years ago but didn’t like it very much so it ended up in the bin!
    I’ll let you into a secret ~ the floor isn’t really tiles……… its lino :)

    ooohhh WOW Spiral chick, LOVE this fab bracelet, the rhodonite w/ pyrite goes sooo beautifully w/ the copper wire – I’m awed and amazed at how lovely your wirework is, especially all the coils you used! Sounds like I missed the earrings you also did with this combo, will have to look them up – what did you name your earrings? :)

    Thanks Joyce. I named the earrings very imaginatively ~ Copper Dreams ;)

    Lynn G ~ This is the first lot of copper jewellery I’ve made. I’m not selling at the mo but will start again soon. I’ve previously sold on eBay but might try Etsy & the UK equivalent Folksy & see how I get on. I’m trying to pluck up the courage to try a few shops in town :)

    K H says:

    Copper wire is fun to work with – Just be careful with your tools because it is soft and easily marred. I don’t have a wire jig, but that may be one of my next investments.

    Mary - Sweet Chick says:

    HHMMM? Reading the fine-print warning? Is Tool Magic toxic in any way? If it is I may prefer a nylon pliers.

    Starsparkle Spiral Chick says:

    Tool Magic is fab ~ just don’t inhale it or eat it & you should be alright! :)

    FULL FAB, like my daughter would say! :) Again your wirework is quite impressive and I love the toggle in the front with the pendant, so subtle!

    Gemme Designs says:

    I realize now from reading the comments that this is a bracelet, but it would make a fabulous necklace too, you should make one!

    J Foreman says:

    I really like copper but am pretty new at this. I worry about copper being strong enough for a bracelet, especially with all the spirals that could catch on something. Is this a problem? or am I just worrying too much?

  45. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Hi, J Foreman — I bought this bracelet from Spiral Chick and haven’t had any problems at all with the spirals catching on anything when I wear it. I’ve also made a lot of jewelry pieces (necklaces, bracelets, & earrings) using copper and they’ve all held up beautifully. :D

    Faithful Chick aka Faith says:

    You need a book for all the comments on this bracelet. I looked at your site and I found so many pretty pieces. I wish I had the money to buy them all… well what can I say my money tree is not doing very well this year. That’s my husbands joke.. He’s always going to pluck me just a bit everyday. You are a very talented person. Sooooo
    glad again to have found you and others on this site.
