Introduction: DIY Bullet Bracelet

About: Hi there! I started this profile to share my DIY creations and to inspire you to make cool stuff. Here I will publish my DIY creations, videos, tips and tricks, secrets of fixing stuff. http://inspiretomak...

I this tutorial I'll show you how I made this awesome Bullet Shell Bracelet.

Check out the video first.

Step 1: Materials and Tools

Step 2: Cutting the Wire.

I got this copper cable as it is from a hardware store. I'm using it as the base for my bracelet. This cable is combined of 7 bare copper wires of 6ga each.

7 inches of this cable is a perfect length to make a bracelet that will fit any wrist.

Step 3: Shaping

Next I used a small anvil, hammer and pliers to bend this cable in a C shape. You can use any wooden stick to bend it around.

Step 4: Soldering

To make sure that all the wires will stay in place I've decided to solder the ends of the cable.

Flux, solder and a blow torch are required to it.

Step 5: Wrapping

I wrapped my bracelet with an outer shell of a 10mm climbing rope. Then I secured the ends of the rope with a string and melted them with a lighter.

Step 6: The Final Touch

40 caliber bullet shells where used as end caps for my bracelet. Hot glue is flexible and has the best grip for this rope material.

Step 7: Enjoy Your New Awesome Bracelet!

I'm wearing my bracelet every day. It has a solid core and feels very nice and sturdy.

    I think a wire mesh would be cool over the cable.

    I love the idea. I envision it with the metal mesh (like the flex plumbing pipes) so that it would be easier to keep clean. In DIY'ing, one thing always leads to another!

    Very pro looking bracelet :)

    Hot gluing while holding the work piece in hand looks scary!

    Maybe its just me, since I am clumsy with such things and had my share of glue burns :|

    Sooooo Cool!!!!!!!!
