I just finished my first bangle bracelet. I have a customer who wanted to get something for her Mom for Mother's Day. However she wanted it to showcase all of her children as well as their spouses and all 7 of her grandchildren. We decided on a bracelet because it just seemed like way too many charms to hang on a necklace.
The bangle itself is made from 14 gauge sterling silver wire which I formed into a bracelet shape and fashioned a twirly "s" hook on each end so that the bracelet can be fastened when worn.
I also added a round Swarovski round crystal bead in garnet for just a little pop of color since she said her Mom really liked deep red.
I'm happy with the way it turned out. I really enjoy the unique look that the wire wrapping adds to the piece. It's a great technique because you really can't mess it up. There's no template. You just do it how you think it should be done.
This item costs $65.
