Retired - Holiday Wire Wrapped Cuff

PROJECT B6016
Designer: Suki Song
Skill Level: Advanced
This is an elegant and modern holiday cuff, adorned with beautiful Olive Green Magatama and Red silver-lined square beads.
Instructions
  1. Please begin by watching this video:How to Wire Wrap Beads onto a Bangle.
  2. 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. For this particular project, you can easily tuck in the end of your wire (when you're beginning a row, and when there is only a few inches left) into the rows of beads. Afterwards, if you have any wire sticking out, you can clip them off with flush cutters.
  3. Your starting point will be approximately .5 inches from one end of the bangle. Here, you will start by wire-wrapping approximately 10 wraps without beads.
  4. Then, string on 12 olive green magatama beads, and wrap it onto the cuff. Then, wire-wrap approximately 10 wraps without beads.
  5. Next, string on 9 red square beads, and wrap it onto the cuff. Then, wire-wrap approximately 10 wraps without beads.
  6. Then, string on 12 olive green magatama beads, and wrap it onto the cuff. Then, wire-wrap approximately 10 wraps without beads.
  7. Next, string on 9 red square beads, and wrap it onto the cuff. Then, wire-wrap approximately 10 wraps without beads.
  8. Then, string on these beads in this order: Olive, red, olive, red, olive, red, olive, red, olive, red, and olive. Wrap these beads onto the cuff. Then, wire-wrap approximately 10 wraps without beads.
  9. String on these beads in this order: red, olive, red, olive, red, olive, red, olive, red, olive, red. Wrap these beads onto the cuff. Then, wire-wrap approximately 10 wraps without beads.
  10. Repeat steps 8-9 five times.
  11. Then, repeat step 8.
