Daily Wire Tip June 28: Supply Lists for Wire Jewelry DVDs
Daily Wire Jewelry Making Tip for
June 28, 2011
Hi Dale, I am looking at purchasing your beginners video #1 (the wire bracelet), and I would like to order everything at once to get started with the project. Where do I find the list of materials for that video? I know this info may be somewhere else that I have not found. Thanks for your help.

Hi Cathy, yes there is a lot of information on the Wire-Sculpture website! To view any of the supply lists for our DVDs, go to the front page of Wire-Sculpture.com, and look on the left side of the page. There is a link called Jewelry Making Supplies. Follow this link and look for DVD supply lists, and click on it, then click on the series and DVD you seek. The supplies for each product are listed at the bottom of each page. Now, the DVD supply lists do not always tell you exactly what length of each wire is needed for a specific DVD project (measurements are included in the DVD instruction sheet); rather, the lists give you the choices of metals in the gauges that are used.
All Wire Unisex Bangle (for supply kit, click here)
To make your first all wire Unisex Bangle, you will need no less that 6 inches of 18-gauge round soft wire, and 22-gauge square half hard wire. The amount of 22-gauge square depends on the size of your wrist and how wide you would like the bracelet to be. Based on an 8-inch wrist you will be safe to use 6 feet of one metal choice (like silver) and 3 feet of another metal choice (like gold filled) to make a bi-color bracelet, or you can use one metal for the entire bracelet and get 9 feet of your choice. I hope you enjoy learning the wrapping process, and enjoy proudly wearing your new bangle!
