This tutorial teaches you how to make a filigree style bracelet using wire wrapped cold connections.
Included in this lesson is a way to modify the basic bracelet to include a frame to support a large focal bead or cabochon. This portion of the tutorial only includes instructions for the frame. You will need to decide what method to use to attach the stone to the frame. However, there is another tutorial included in the downloads that can be easily adapted to use with the bracelet tutorial.
This bracelet does use multiple small pieces of 16 gauge wire. If you have pieces of "scrap" that have been cut off of other projects that are 2" or longer, this project is a great use for those pieces.
* 7 2” pieces of 16 gauge round wire
* 2 7” pieces of 16 gauge round wire
* 32’ 26 gauge round wire
