Gold and Silver Braided Wire Bangle with Tube Beads
designed byCheri Carlson
Skill LevelBeginner
TechniqueWire-Working
Time1-3 hours
Approximate Size8 3/4 Inches

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.

Cheri's Signature

  • Instructions
  • Supplies

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!
