Copper Fun

I bought a bunch of copper wire and I am having so much fun fashioning some jewelry from it. Here is a bangle I just made last week:






It is made entirely from different sizes of copper wire, with lampwork glass beads and two different sizes of copper beads! This is based on a tutorial by Connie Fox.


Last month I was working on s-link bracelets:


I coil some wire to cut to make rings.



I cut the rings and file the edges. I also form by hand some s-shaped links.



The s-links need to be hammered flat.




The fully assembled bracelet!

Your copper bracelet is so beautiful.

Yesterday I was tagged in blog-tag and so now I am going to tag you (please forgive me). According to the person who tagged me you write 7 little known things about yourself.

Good luck!
