Project 1- All Wire Unisex Bangle

“This is my absolute favorite beginner’s project as it teaches all of the basic skills and techniques I deem necessary to progress into any traditional or classic wire jewelry design that uses square half-hard wire. You will learn how to straighten wire using only your hands and how to successfully bundle, tape and then make neat, tight wraps using square half-hard wire. The procedures taught in my All Wire Bangle are found in about 85% of my designs and patterns!” Dale "Cougar" Armstrong

  • Making this bracelet project before attempting any other square half-hard wire design will make your attempts more successful.
