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.
