For these wire bangles, I wanted it to be difficult to see where the join was in the wire, so I added extra crimp tubes so that the functioning ones would become part of the decoration within the piece.
Two simple components are all you need to make lots of fun bangles. Cheri used braided wire and crimp tubes from Artistic Wire to achieve this style. The braided wire makes an excellent foundation for bangles and the crimp tubes keep the ends of the bangles together. We even used extra crimp tubes as fun decorative beads
Cut a piece of 12 gauge rose gold-plated color braided round Artistic Wire to the desired length for a bangle and then shape it. We used the Beadalon 3D bracelet jig with pegs to shape the bangle, as it is a great shape and the perfect size for a bangle. You could also use a can, mug or water bottle.
Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up the design and make it yours by substituting similar products or altering the entire color scheme—it’s up to you!
