DIY Ooh la la Wire Wrapped Cluster Bracelet Amethyst
Our DIY wire wrapped bracelets will give you lots of practice at wire wrapping. Generally speaking, there are two types of loops – the simple loop and the wire-wrapped loop. The wire wrapped loop has a secured bottom, and a wrapped loop which prevents it from opening. This design starts with making wire wrapped loops using a small seed bead and Czech glass pressed bead or crystal. You will make lots of them, before stringing them on a spine using a flex wire, known as tiger tail. Create a length which suits you best. Use the seed beads to create extra length plus an unusual clasp toggle. The end result is a unique, highly textured bracelet.
