Making the Bracelet

As the hostess I made bracelets for 20 of the girls


WHAT YOU NEED:

• 16 gauge, dead soft, wire (you can get this at a hardware store)
• Flush or semi-flush wire cutters
• Round nose pliers
• Chain nose pliers
• Flat nose pliers
• Ruler
• wood dowel or bic pen
Thunder bird supply sells both wire and tools.


S-LINK
1. Flush cut 7 to 8 pieces of 16g gauge dead soft wire, 3 inches long.
2. Place the end of your wire at the back of your small round nose pliers. Grip your pliers firmly and roll your hand forward to create a P forum repeat on the other end but forum the P in the wrong direction.


3. At the back of your large round nose pliers grip your wire under one of the P roll to the center of the wire repeat on the other side.








A small recap of the steeps :)



MAKING THE JUMP RINGS

Wrap 20" of 16-gauge wire around a wood dowel that is 1/4" or less in diameter. Keep a tail in your non-wrapping hand so that you have something to hang onto.
Wrap away from your body and place the coils as close to each other as possible.
When you reach the end of the wire, reverse the direction of the dowel and wrap the tail onto the dowel. Remove the coil from the dowel. You can saw or flush cut your rings.


Now its time to attach the s-links to the open jump ringsopen your jump ring then add two s-links then close the jump ring.


continue until you have the completed bracelet.
use the last S-link as your clasp by leaving the end open so it can attach to a closed jump ring.

Haven't been real good about communicating lately---but I do read your blog and love all that you are doing. This is a wonderful tutorial. I can't wait for you to come to Chicago this summer so I can take a real class with you. Your instructions are so clear and easy to follow---in person you must be unbelievable!!!
hugs, shari

What great instructions! I used them, and made myself a bracelet out of galvanized wire instead of copper so my soldered charms will match. The wire was a lot harder to bend than copper, but it still worked. It's my first shot at jewelry making and I love it!! Thank you for your generosity.

Oh, and I'd buy your book! (hint, hint)
