This bangle was inspired by an image of a wispy winter tree. I made the bangle in a silver tone to reflect the image but you could use any combination of colored wire for a splash of whimsy. Use reds, oranges, and yellows for summer fun! It's a quick, easy project and you'll be able to crank out a bunch in a weekend.
