Here is my twist on this awesome project:



I used flat beads with a cool pearly/shell like quality, so it is really pretty when the light hits it right.  I am so happy with the way it turned out.

Here's mamamoonie's attempt, sorry about the crappy phone-cam pix...

and the back:


the focal is a big ceramic macrame bead I got from a friend in a bead grab-bag swap.  I loved the bead, but I could never find a use for it!!

I had to give this a shot! I don't have much experience with wire, but would love to learn, and this seemed like a good project to start out with. I used steel wire, 1.1 mm (galvanized) and 0.4 mm (stainless - is that the same as galvanized? It looks shinier, but that could be because they are different brands, perhaps) in diameter. The beads are an assortment of cheap (and thus not very high quality) glass luster beads from my local bead shop, and some beads I had lying around (leftovers from previous projects). I'm very pleased with the result, but I have to get some other thin wire to work with, this one was really hard to wrap tightly (either I need a softer one, or a lot more practise  Wink).

And here it is:




GREAT tutorial, thank you SO much! I will definitely make more of these, and I hope I'll get better at getting the wire to bend the way I want it to bend  Wink. It's comfortable to wear too, since there are no beads on the "underside" that get in the way, and yet it looks so massive...  Grin

How did some of you manage to make them without clasps?  And where did you hide the ends of the thicker wire (since they're without clasps)?  Ty in advance ^_^

BTW: To the original poster: I LOVE this project, I've been browsing it all afternoon wishing I had the wires! Heh.

It doesn't need a clasp since the thick wire keeps the shape you bent it into. The bracelet is rigid. You make an opening that is just big enough to fit the side of your wrist, so that you can put it on. The ends of the thick wire are inside the spirals, the squiggly part. Clearer now?

I understand the ones with the spirals, but I meant this:

i bought the frames a month ago and still hadn't thought of what to put on it, here in my country they usually use shiny glassbeads, and i don't wanna use that bcoz it seems so mainstream already... but tnx to ur post it inspired me of what to use...

sorry for the crappy pics... i used a cameraphone.
i sold it for only $5... (yupz, quite cheap bcoz the dollar rate here is high)  but if im going to use swarovski stones it might cost around $30-40, even $60.

She doesn't have any swirls at the ends, so I'm wondering how to hide the ends so neatly ^_^ but thanks!
