So I twisted the day away (in between shoveling and salting the driveway etc..)
This is fun BUT I did make a lot of mistakes and I love Kerry's suggestion to start with copper wire before moving on to the Sterling Silver wire.
First picture is of my mistakes, cause there is a learning curve.
Next is of the first project, the bracelet. I have been thinking about doing this style for a while to show one way to use my beads. It was fun, and gave me some ideas for other projects. So this will be one of the give-a-ways!
Also I have added a picture of how I ended the bracelet. I made a chain and used a lobster clasp.
This is a great way to end a bracelet. The bracelet will fit a wide range of sizes. For shows it is great because you won't lose a sale because the bracelet is too small or too big. If you don't want a handmade chain simply crimp it to a 1/2 inch or less length of silver chain. Add a little wired bead on the end and presto you have a adjustable bracelet!
Another project is on its way. We have only 11 comments so your odds look pretty good!
So keep posting and the drawing will be on Sun. Feb. 6th at 5:00.
