Skill Level:

intermediate skill level requirement Advanced

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Like any jewelry skills we learn, working with fine gauge wire is a learned skill. Here is some helpful info for you: If a loop forms as the wire is pulled through the frames, it will get smaller and smaller until a kink forms. To remedy this, uncurl and straighten the wire as soon as a loop begins to form which can be done with your fingers. Also, when pulling the wire through your fingers, don't tightly squeeze the wire or run your fingernails along the wire as it can curl the wire. Pull wire with the pads of your fingers with gentle pressure to avoid curling.

Pattern Description:

Ever want to learn how to weave with fine-gauge wire? Well, here is your chance! Make this chic woven wire cuff, learning how to make a frame base and then weave.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • In the tutorial, you will be instructed on how to size the bracelet to fit your wrist.

Materials:

  • 23" 14-gauge dead soft wire (NOTE: The heavy gauge wire is for the frame of the cuff. 16-, 14-, or 12-gauge wire can be used. 16-gauge will be a flexible frame, with 12-gauge being a rigid frame. My preference is 14-gauge wire.)
  • 25' 26-gauge dead soft wire

You Will Also Need:

  • Flush cutters
  • Round nose pliers
  • Chain nose pliers
  • Ruler
  • Sharpie
  • Bracelet mandrel (optional)
