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 :)

    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.

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

    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.

    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).
