Tutorial WB12: Braided Wire Cuff
Technique: Wirework, wire wrapping, braiding
Level: Intermediate-Advance

In this lesson, you will learn how to create this one of a kind braided wire cuff. No soldering or glue involves.
You will learn how to join two separate braided pieces to create a sturdy cuff and wrapped all the beads/pearl in place.

Complete step-by-step written instructions with close up and crisp clear photographs will guide you through this project. Once you master the technique, this cuff has limitless possibilities – use your favorite beads – gemstones, crystals and glass beads.

• 432 cm (170 in or 14 feet) of 20ga wire. This will make a cuff of 15 cm in length.
• 100 cm (40 in or 3 feet) of 28ga. Extra included for ease of coiling.
• Beads or Pearls of various sizes – I leave it to your personal preferences.

For this project I used 1 coin pearl (1cm), 8 oblong shaped pearls(8mm), 6 round pearls(6mm) and 16 rice pearls(3mm).

•Round nose pliers
•Bent-nose pliers
•Nylon jaw pliers
•Wire cutters
•Spring clamp or adjustable clamp – you can find them in the hardware store. Find one which is at least 1 inch wide.
•Masking tape
•A small bottle as mandrel – use one with about 5 cm diameter or the size of your wrist
•Ruler and marker pen

The basic framework of this bracelet can be modified for a variety of styles and will enable me to push my skills to a new level. Detailed photos, including how to position your clamp for bending and shaping multiple strands of thick wire all at one time. Great price, too! Thank you so much!
