Metallic Blue

About this design:

Found a tutorial for this bracelet on and had to try it. This design uses square and half round wire which required alot of patience because if the bends in the square wire weren't right the bracelet wouldn't lay correctly!


20 ga half hard square copper wire and 20 ga half hard half round copper wire. Lapis

    Dear Leigh ~ what a beautiful bracelet. I love Lapis, and the combination of the copper and the Lapis is amazing. I really like the stark simplicity and delicacy of the piece. I’m so glad the wire worked for you. Best ~ Linda
