Wire can be a tricky material to work with, but once you master it, it can be one of the most valuable things in your crafting toolbox. Today I’m going to share with you a great beginner DIY wire bracelet that will help familiarize you with the versatile material. Keep reading to find out how you can make a super stylish wire tassel bracelet.
Here’s what you’ll need for this project:
- Malleable gold wire
- Faux leather tassel (I bought mine on Amazon)
- Gold jump ring
- 6 gold crimps
- A small mason jar (optional)
Begin by wrapping the wire around the mason jar (it is really just being used as a size guide). It’s not absolutely necessary, but it does make it easier. Wrap the gold wire around 5 or 6 times, depending on how thick you’d like your bracelet to be. The more layers of wire you have, the stronger the bracelet will be.
Next, use your pliers to wrap one of the crimps around all of the wires. Close the crimp tightly so the wires don’t slip out.
Do this with all 6 crimps so that they are evenly spaced around the bracelet. They play a functional role here, keeping the wires in place, but they also look pretty!
