Make It By Mail

And this is the bracelet that I made...

I used 1mm copper wire which I straightened by running it through my nylon pliers. I then shaped the bangle around a small tin I used as a former and created the two curled ends. Next I hammered the wire to give it a lovely texture which helps reflect the light. I created the link by ,making a wrapped loop with a large eye on one end of a piece of wire, threaded on the faceted pink square bead and then created the second wrapped loop. I finished the piece off with a thin coat of clear nail varnish to help to prevent tarnish

Its my Birthday this month, so when I saw these gorgeous beads I knew I had an excuse to buy them. I am love the current trend for rose gold/copper elements in jewellery making so just had to buy a reel of copper wire to complement the beads
