Wire Wrapped Crown

Here is a wire wrapped crown I made recently! It’s kind of small, so I’m planning on using it as a hair accessory.

Just a side note: I got an Instagram! It’s easier to post pictures there on my phone, so I will be posting there more often. You can follow me @inkedharmonie.

Wreath Bangle Tutorial

20130902_191104

Materials: 20 gauge wire (gold), 24 gauge wire (silver), round nose pliers, wire cutters, ruler, and beads of your choice

Cut off 3.5 inches of the 20 gauge wire and start coiling into an “s” shape.

Make eight (or whatever amount fits around the largest part of your hand) of these:

Then take the 24 gauge wire and start wrapping as shown in the following pictures (I kept the wire attached to the spool):

When you get to the middle of the right swirl (picture above), start to coil another “s” to it. Remember to keep it in the same direction as the other one.

Continue to coil around the second “s”:

Repeat the process until you have attached all the coils to each other. Then wrap the last one around the first “s”.

Once you have finished coiling, measure at least an extra 12 inches (definitely more if you have a bigger bangle) and snip off. It will look like this now:

As you can see, it’s not very round, so shape it with your hands until you feel it’s good.

Now, string beads of your choice onto the 24 gauge wire.

Then loop your wire around the opposite edge to secure.

Continue until you reach the end. For mine, I looped the wire without beads on it yet in some places so the beads would stay where I wanted them to be.

Finally, when you get back to the beginning loop it around once or twice and then you can snip off any extra wire.

And you’re done!

Here are my first few attempts at wire weaving! The one on the left is a ring, the middle a pendant, and the right one is also a ring.
