Introduction: Easy Beaded Braided Bracelet
This is an absolutely easy to make cute bracelet. You can create these in various colors and make your outfit look chic ;)
Step 1: Materials
-Copper wire 18 gauge : 50cm, 25cm
-Copper wire 16 gauge : 3cm
Step 2: Start
First take the 50cm wire, fold it into two and make a loop. Then take the 25cm wire and make a hook. Insert this hook in the other loop. Make sure it is in proper place. Now twist the smaller end of the hook around the loop with the help of pliers so that it doesn't move and is held in place. Cut off any excess wire.
Step 3: The Braid
You will have three strands of wire of approximately same length. Now insert a bead in the middle wire. Bring the left wire over the middle wire and right over the left (now in center).
Well, this is just a simple braid like the basic hair braid.
Step 4: Finish
For finishing it, just twist two wires around each other and curl each of them in the form of a spiral . One of those wires will form a loop to attach the hook. Interlock the end of this hook into itself and press hard. Now take the 3cm wire and make the hook as shown with the help of your pointed pliers. Put both the ends of the hook into each of the loop. Your bracelet is now ready :)
