Why I'm writing about it?
Simple :) Because I decided to try it :)
Fact, I'm still waiting for my copper wire, but that's not mean I have no wire at home :)
Yesterday I realized that actually I should have somewhere in my stash bit of wire I bought ages ago when I was starting my adventure with jewellery making - I was bit crazy then, I was buying lots of things and never used some of them :).
I couldn't find silver-plated wire I remember I have, but I found aluminium wire in beautiful blue colour :) Very soft stuff, but perfect for practicing coils :)
1st attempt :)
2 attempt :)
Possibly I need different pliers - nylon jaws or something :) to avoid scratching off the colour from wire.
First try with creating Egyptian links :) Lots of scratches :)
And whole bracelet - not scratched :)
Fact - I need to make new clasp, cause this one not looks good, but...
keeping bracelet on my hand nicely :)
If you want to know how to make bracelet like this, here link to tutorial I saw about 2 years ago:
Also found this very interesting article about coiling with nice video tutorials:
That's all for today! So... till next post ;)
