Pattern Description:

Another wire work jewelry from XQDesigns. This piece has many inspirations. Embellished with an oval bead it can look like a flower with seeds. With its spiraled ends it can mimic the rays of the sun and because of the swirls it can also be called a twister. The chosen name for the bangle was based on suggestion of Little Everyday Creation who admires wire work jewelry and an artisan herself/himself.

Creating the bracelet involves wire wrapping and a bit of herringbone wire weaving techniques. This tutorial is suited for intermediate to advance level.
