i saw these for sale in a market in france for well over 60 dollars each, and, as many of you crafters out there might do, i thought "oh man, i can make those...easy..."



(agh, i'm apologising in advance for the crappy pictures...i tried. really i did.)


--->> You will need:
                like a yard of 24 gauge wire
                a length of 18 gauge wire, about 2 feet long
                about 50 small to medium sized beads. this project is great for using up all those mix-matched glass beads.


-- begin by bending the 18-gauge (thicker) wire in half, and from that bend, create a little squiggle a-like-a-so:


-- it takes a little bit of trial and error to get the size *just* right, but when you get it to wrap comfortably around your wrist, make a swirl on each side, and then wrap them right there with the thin wire.


--begin by winding a little of the 24-gauge (thin) wire around one side..


-- thread a few beads on the thin wire and slid 'em down.


-- wrap the wire around the other side *twice* to help secure it.


-- and, you know, you'll see, when it wraps along, now it's in the back, so just leave beads off the back, wrap if around again, and then put beads on, so they're all in the front.


-- at the end, just wrap the thin wire around a whole lot.


-- so here's the inside/back


-- and here's a crappy picture of the fronts!!!



comments!! please!! and if you try this project, please post pictures of finished products!

I'm getting the 24 g wire tomorrow and working up a bracelet for my Valentine Smoochie.  SUCH a beautiful creation, thanks for sharing it with us!
