Instructions
Step 1
Wrap a scrap of ribbon or fabric around an inexpensive wire bangle. I purchased a set of 10 at a discount store. The length of ribbon depends upon how wide it is and how much you overlap it on the bangle. I generally need less than 24 inches Use a bit of fabric glue to secure this at the beginning and end. Note: It is not necessary to glue the entire length of ribbon; just wrap it tightly as it will be further secured with wire.

Step 2
Cut a piece of complimentary colored artistic wire about 26 inches in length. Wrap the artistic wire around the bangle leaving about 3 inches at the beginning and the end of the wrap for making the embellishment.

Step 3
When the last wire wrap reaches the first, create an embellishment by first twisting the wires together.

Step 4
Circle the wires around this twist laying them flat against the bracelet. One wire will follow the other around the center.

Step 5
When you near the end of each wire, use the round nose pliers to create a loop and tuck this under the flower.
