Copper Squared (Thanks Nancy!)

About this design:

Little Round Chick threw down the gauntlet and I pick it up and ran with it! Nancy suggested I try a free form cuff, maybe with squares.
So... here it is. A little tough to photograph as the square beads kept swinging. But it will sit right on the wrist.
The self-clasp can be closed and the bracelet worn as a cuff for someone with a larger wrist.


copper wire (probably 14 gauge) and 26 gauge, Rainbow Soocho Jade

    Well….yes, I did notice that — You really do have the teensiest wrists I’ve ever seen, Jeanne! ;)

    BTW, what did you use to get your “squares” so even? I haven’t mastered that shape yet! LOL

    Thank you friends!!!

    Lynn – would you believe I just “eyeballed” the “squares” using the beads as a guide. You can see they’re no perfect in perfect. (you know when you drive on over)

    Nancy – I’ve fallen in love with bending wire! Now let’s see how they sell…
