Well done!

They are SUCH fun to make, aren't they?

I think my biggest hurdle with these is finding just the proper item around which to "form" them, so the wire frames look smoother.

What do you use?

I didn't bend mine around anything.  They are pretty wobbley looking.   I should find a shampoo bottle or something for the next ones I make. 

They are really fun and I think they look very professional.  I am planning on making one for each lady in my family....hopefully it won't get old.

Does anyone have a problem w/ the 16 gauge wire....coming undone? I bent it into a nice round shape but when it came time to wrap the wire and beads around it, the 16 gauge kept getting all bent and stuff. And now when I try to wear it, if I shake my hand or whatever, it unbends itself from the round shape I'd bent it into and it falls off! I'm very frustrated. Forgive my lack-of-organization and rambling post. It's just that I spent an hour trying to make my perfect bracelet and now it won't stay a bracelet. Tongue

Daydreamer,  That didn't happen at all to mine.  I wonder if it's the type of wire you're using.  Earlier in the thread they were talking about different kinds of wire.  I used a kind from JoAnns and a kind my husband had laying around.  What kind did you use?

My wire was from Michael's. It was the thickest that I could find.

Here's my take on this bracelet.  I used 18 gauge wire but I think it was soft since it seems highly flexible and a bit woggidy.  But I love it all the same.  Thanks for the tutorial!
