Whole Lotta Green Bracelet by Jamie Hogsett

8:55 AM

The Twist N Curl is one of the tools that I demonstrated a lot last week in Tucson. So much so, that a deep grove formed in my thumb nail from forming these wire beads! I love making these little beads - they're fun, quick, and very easy. 

Using 22-gauge Craft Wire in Peridot, I pre-strung the beads (small beads 5mm or less work best), coiled the wire for about 1/2", coiled back over the previous coil twice (back and forth for a total of three layers), then incorporated the beads into the final coil. Once the beads were formed, I used 20-gauge Peridot Craft Wire to wire wrap the beads together. The final step was making the toggle clasp, using 22-gauge wire and a Sharpie marker mandrel for the ring.

When I showed Sara the finished piece, her first response was "Wow, that's a whole lot of green!"
