I made this a while back, but I just got around to putting some clasps on this afternoon. I'm not a jewelry-maker, and this idea originally started out to be a napkin ring. However, when I rolled the first one around a dowel, it got smushed. It looked better flat, so my bracelet was born. (If you jewelry experts have a better idea on how to clasp this, I'm all ears.)

Next time, I'd do fewer rows, because the wire stretches and the clasps add a half inch. I would like it to be more like a tight cuff. All in all, it's a quick project, and it dresses up a plain outfit.

Hope you like it.


Go Red Sox!
I'm easily amused and easily confused.

The label on the wire is long gone, but I think it is 32 gauge, if that size makes sense to those in the know.

What about a button clasp? You could start the bracelet with a shank button in the middle (width wise) of the bracelet  and at the end bind off the width of the button in the center of the end then cast that number back on the next row then bind off all of the stitches. That way you can customize the fit because the additional row will overlap and the shank button will look like another bead, especially if you use another somewhere else in the bracelet.

Today I shall do my utmost to promote evil and misery, cause harm to others, and generally promote the dark side of the force.
