Modern Twist Bracelet Instructions Designed by Cynthia Kimura
This gorgeous and fun twisted wire bracelet is great for every day wear and formal occasions alike! Use the Wig Jig Olympus Lite to make the links.
Tip: When making the links, make sure the loops are slightly loose around the pins, otherwise it may be difficult to pull the link from the Wig Jig.
Step one: Cut a piece of 20 gauge sterling silver wire to approximately nine inches. Straighten it using your nylon jaw pliers. Follow the directions included in the Wig Jig Olympus Lite to make the links. Our designer found it easier to hold the tool in your hand with the wire end held down than to work on a flat surface. Remember to make your loops a bit loose so that you can easily remove them from the tool.
Step two: Make seven links and attach them using sterling silver open jump rings.
Step three: Attach a sterling silver simple hook and eye clasp to finish the bracelet.
Approximate size: 8½ inches
