Introduction: Copper Bracelets Made From Scrap Wires

Hello again
Here are some of many copper bracelets i made in the winter on my sailboat.
There are all made out of scrap wires . For the ends i used solder and brass tubing.
Some wires are solid some are stranded. They are differend in size and some
are tin coated for marine use ( Corrosion ).I stripped of the insulation .
The colours was made by puting the bracelets in a toaster oven and heat them.
These bracelets only cost pennys to make and are fun to make on cold days.
Please Recycle :)

    So cool! First bracelet looks like woven hair. Would love to see the instructions.

    neat i like it, but copper like most metals leaves a metal residue (copper leaves like a green tint on your skin). But other than that the bracelet looks nice

    The green tint is actually copper oxide, and is harmless. 3 coats of clear lacquer should prevent that from ever being a problem if it bothers you.

    Thank you
    This gives me something to do in the winter .
    Keeps me out of trouble......... ;)

    i love these pc's and i would love to make some. do you have an instructable for your bracelets and rings?

    thanks

    Inspiring. Now I just need to learn to braid like that, and find where to buy the brass caps and clasps from

    i'm liking this. can be made for both men and women and i really like the one with the multiple strands. what did you use for the end caps? very nice. thanks for sharing and i cant wait for the instructable.

    Thank you !!!
    B :)

    I certainly want to see that instructable when you have it completed. I can handle the braiding I'm sure, but some ideas about how to handle finishing the ends would be very helpful.

    I will post a instructable this weekend to show how to make a complete
    bracelet from start to finish.
    Thank you for your comment

    Thank you for your comment .
    I only type with one finger so i will add some instruction at a later time .
    ( I can type about 8 words a minute or so ;)

    That's slower than me, although I do use other fingers occasionally, I still use only one at one time. By the way, you could totally sell these on etsy and make some money.

    I would like to sell them but selling is not my strong point.
    I have checked etsy but you have to have a account to sell and i do not have one.
    Thank you

    They're free to make (I think..) and selling doesn't have to be a strong point, you could probably ask a friend if they could write up a worthy blurb and possibly take some good photos (white background, lots of similarly coloured white light, etc).

    I will try your geat tips for new photos
    Thank you
