Ombre Wire Wrapped Beaded Cuff

PROJECT B698
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
This dazzling cuff bracelet shines with rows of sparkling SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS bicone beads in a fetching ombre pattern.
Instructions
  1. Begin by watching the video: How to Wire Wrap Rows of Beads onto a Form.
  2. Cut a as long of a length of wire that you are comfortable with. Please note you will definitely need to add more wire as you go and will do so simply by finishing the wire end of the existing piece by wrapping it 4-5 times around the bangle edge (where you would have wrapped it anyways in the normal course of adding bead rows), trimming the tail, then adding a new piece of wire by wrapping over your existing wraps from the last piece of wire, trimming its short tail, and continuing with your pattern of adding bead rows.
  3. Based upon what you learned in the video, and referring to the project photo, begin your wire wrapping 1/2" from one end of your cuff bracelet. Make 6 tight wraps, string on 6 crystal bicone beads, draw the wire across the hollow midsection of the cuff to a point directly across from your wrappings, and make 6 more tight wraps as shown in the video. See photo.
  4. Continue this process until you have the following bead rows wrapped onto your form (each row will have 6 beads in it): 4 rows of crystal beads, 4 rows of light rose beads, 4 rows of rose beads, 7 rows of ruby beads, 4 rows of rose beads, 4 rose of light rose beads, and 4 rows of crystal beads. After all of these have been wrapped onto the form, make 6 tight securing wraps around the side of the cuff and snip off any excess wire with flush cutters.
  5. Enjoy!
