This lesson shows how to create a framed bracelet, wrapping a focal bead in the center, all with just one piece of wire. The focal bead and the frame are then embellished with beads, coils, and weaving. Once the basic concept and design of the bracelet are learned, you can embellish the frame to your liking - add crystals, semi-precious stones, maybe a spiral or two! 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. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knowledge of how to use basic jewelry tools. Knowledge of basic wire wrapping. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS In the tutorial, you will be instructed on how to size the bracelet to fit your wrist.
