Easy Wire Bracelet

About this design:

I saw this technique on a video (Artbeads) & decided to try it. It really is quick & easy. I used painter's tape to hold the 3 main wires together which helped a ton! I did this away from all my tools so need to rework that wonky clasp & workharden it a bit. I've been very busy making so much jewelry. I'm preparing for my first booth at my church bazaar on October 9th. I will certainly have enough inventory. I just hope I sell a bunch too!

Components:

18 & 24 gauge copper wire, green zebra jasper 6mm rounds, 3mm Toho olympic bronze cubes

    Oh, very nice! The green zebra jasper looks awesome with the copper. Love the bronze cubes along the edge. The wire wrapping in and around the beads creates a very cool effect. :)

    This looks great Moogie. I watched that video a few weeks ago and thought that I’ll have to try that technique sometime. I really like your colour choices and am glad to hear it was not too difficult. How long did this take you to do?

    Sorry girls, have been mostly off site only to look and buy. LOL I have had a lot of trouble with my eyes. Plus, my Daughter moved back to Ohio and in with us until she gets settled with her dog and cat. So, anyway I am back.
    Moogie, I watched the video and thought I couldn’t do the technique,but your idea of the tape may make it possible. Great bracelet!
    Good luck at your sale at your church. I have not attempted a booth yet. Hope you sell lots of your pretty creations!

    Ditto to all the above! Just started my first bracelet of this genre, and see some things on yours that I really like. As an aside, have you ever tried double-stick tape? I swear by it for some situations. Will look up that video for sure!

    I should say that I use the double stick tape like a third hand. It’s a huge help in the right situation.

    Thanks for sharing! This is a nice change of pace from a “normal” wrapped bracelet. :D

    Oh, you guys are too much! It took about 30-45 minutes to make. Once I discovered how easy copper wire is to work with, I wasn’t as intimidated with wire work. I watched the video once, then got my supplies & did it along with the video. If anyone makes one, post it! And thank you again for your graciousness.❤️
