Metal Disk Bracelet

Pattern Description:

In this tutorial you will learn how to make a bracelet frame and add a patterned metal disk of your choice. You will not learn how to make the pattern on the disk.

This wire woven bracelet frame is very versatile and once you have learned how to make it, you can use it as a base for many other embellishments such as gemstone beads, a decorative weave in the opening of the frame, or keep the bundle frame unopened and wear it as a pretty bracelet band. A special feature of this bracelet is the built-in-clasp which is a favorite of many of my students. You can easily add more wires to the bundle for a wider band.

Here at our shop, this bracelet is our beginners class. We have only just recently started to add the metal disks as requested by our students. We are happy to share with you our most popular class for the beginner who wants to learn the fine art of wire wrapping.

For a gorgeous matching set, please also try our tutorial for a Metal Disc Ring.
It will not only enable you to make a beautiful matching ring, but also teach you a great and versatile technique that you can use to make many other styles of rings.

We have been doing wire work for about 10 years or better. I saw my first piece of wire wrapped jewelry at a Rock and Gem show. I fell in love with all the pendants and rings all wrapped in wire. I ...
