Intro: Wire Wrapped Bangle
I wanted to try my hands at wire wrapping and thought to make a bangle. I went shopping and got my wires and bead and got to work!
And guess what? I liked how it turned out :-)
Read on if you like how it turned out too !
Step 1: Wire and Beads
You need thick gauge wire like 18 and thin gauge wire.
An assortment of wires
Step 2: The Bangle
Measure around your wrist.
Cut 2 wires the length of your wrist measurement
now with your pliers ( round nose ....if you have...if not flat will do...It worked for me :-) ) make loops at each ends in both wires.
once loop is made flatten the ends by hammering it.
Next hold the two wires together with the loops facing away from each other and hold with a binder clip ( the alien abducted this picture!)
now wrap the thin gauge wire around.
Now flatten the wrapped wire with a hammer too.
Do the same at the other end too.
Now bend the wire to form a 'U' Shape.
Your bangle is made Madam :-)
Step 3: Wrap It Up!
Now for the fun part !
Take your assortment of beads, and your thin gauge wire.
choose the biggest bead and pass a small or long piece of wire through.
Part the wires of the bangle in the center and place this bead and wrap it around the bangle securing it.
Keep wrapping beads ...have fun here...wrap bigger beads and then come back and fill up with smaller beads!
once you are done...make sure that all the wire ends are tucked in well and that there are not sharp ends.
You are done!
you can either wear it tight around your wrist or loose.... it's your choice!
Step 4: Vote!
You now have the choice to vote for me or not!....Please vote if you like it :-)
Also if there is any improvements that I need to make..please let me know.
