Instructions

Note: Components and tools listed within this INSTRUCTIONS box and the printer-friendly PDF, if available, may have been discontinued since this project was published. Refer to the PURCHASE COMPONENTS and TOOLS AND OTHER SUPPLIES sections for current availability.

Before you begin, please take into consideration that this project is freeform; you will need to refer to the photos often to follow my exact design.
  1. Please begin by watching this video: How to Wire Wrap onto a Bangle.
  2. Mix your green and blue hex beads together. In these instructions, you will come across the term "hex bead(s)". Pick up a hex bead from random, or feel free to alternate between the two colors.
  3. Note that you will need to cut a new length of wire (however long you are comfortable with using) each time you run out of wire.
  4. You can start anywhere you wish. This bracelet is not truly based on a specific pattern, but more freeform. However, it does rotate around three combinations of beads, listed below. In between these rows, I added 4 wire-wraps without any beads:
  5. A) stringing 3 hex cut beads, a gold bead, 3 hex beads, a gold bead, 3 hex beads, a gold bead
  6. B) two hex beads, one gold, two hex beads, one gold, two hex, one gold, two hex, one gold, two hex
  7. C) stringing one gold bead, 3 hex, gold, 3 hex, gold, 3 hex (reverse of A)
  8. Please feel free to rotate and deviate from this pattern. If you would like to follow my exact steps, please refer to the photo.
  9. Complete these steps until you end up back at your starting point.
  10. You're all set!
