This is a present I made for a Christmas gift exchange. I wanted to make something slightly different from what I usually make, try some new techniques. I had used coiling before, but just to end the wire, not to make a complete shape. Despite the fact that it costs some time to coil the circles, I think this is worth it. This probably isn't the best idea for a last-minute gift, but if you have the time you could surely make this. Using different colours can give the bracelet a complete different look, so you can really give it your own twist, maybe even adding some beads? I'm really happy with how it turned out and I hope you like it!

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
To make this bracelet, you will need the following:

- coloured wire, I used 0,5 mm colour coated copper wire, bought here
- silver plated wire, this was a bit thicker, around 0,8 mm
- any kind of wire, this is what I used to make the base of the circles
- pliers
- closure
- thick round marker or other round object

Step 2: Making the basic circles

Using the wire you chose for this, make the basic circles you will be coiling the coloured wire around. I used this jump ring making technique, but then on a wider object (that's where the marker could come handy)

This would be cool also as a belt, if you had enough patience

That would look great! But indeed, that would take a lot of time (and wire) :)
