I made these in May for a swap partner.  She gets to enjoy them now.  I actually have to use her photos because I forgot to take some of my own.  Cheesy

I love these.  I want some for myself.  LOL  They are so, so easy to make and are so beautiful.





Whatcha' think?  Cheesy

You are welcome!!  Cheesy  I got the pattern/idea off the internet and was surprised at how easy and fast they are to make.  And they are so pretty when worn.  Post pics if you make some of your own!!  Cheesy

Those are beautiful. I just wisted them. Also I was wondering if you had some kind of tute for them.

I found the tute using a google search.  It's insanely simple though.  Here is the website I got it off of:

http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art298.asp

I used more wire than they called for on the second bracelet so that the beads got wrapped twice.  But I made it 8 inches around so if you have a small wrist, you won't have that problem!

I'm working on a ring using the same technique but with 24 gauge wire.
using seed beads and little rectangles.

Wow.  You must show pics when you are done.  Seed beads can't be easy to wrap!!

the first layer is the little rectangles & the second layer is seed beads.

to me wire wrapping seems easier than stringing seed beads.

Look pretty--does the wire make it uncomfortable to wear?

I tried them on before I sent them and they were comfortable.  I think that as long as you make sure the tip of the wire ends are tightly wrapped and tucked in, you'll have no issues.
