I’ve been working on a getting more jewelry together and I thought I’d share what I’ve done.
This bracelet was a little difficult to make and it looks a little too rustic to sell, but I love the way it turned out for myself, and I have a lot of pinks and browns in my closet. Here’s how I put it together.
Yay, they’re all done and now it needs to be put together. This is where it gets really tricky. To put the ends together I took a smaller piece of wire, make a small loop, then one seed bead goes on, then a completed wire, then another seed bead goes on, and it continues until finally one last seed bead and the final small loop to close it all off. Then, once I have the ends together I braid three pieces of wire on the bracelet in sections to help keep everything together and tightly in place, otherwise it’s just too floppy.
The wire is pliable so it just wraps around my wrist. Yes…it’s very time consuming and I do believe it would look less rustic using memory wire (I didn’t have any but will try to make one with that next).
