This was my first time working with square wire. I love the way the bracelet came out, but I'll tell you what - that wire is HARD! I got half hard, and nearly killed my hands. Next time, I'll get dead soft.

So, the bracelet - sterling silver square wire, hand formed into freeform waves, the carnelian beads are wired on with 26 gauge sterling silver wire as well.  Wiring onto the frame was also challenging - had to use enough to make sure the wraps didn't slide around too much, but not so much that it was clunky.







What do you think? C/C always appreciated!
