Swirly Copper Accents

Hello! This week's bracelet is one that I made last weekend in our local jewelry making group at the library. I was learning how to make 3 hole spacers out of 22 gauge copper wire that has little swirls on top. I'm STILL learning, but this was a lot of fun and for the sake of simplicity, I used copper wire for the entire project rather than stringing wire so it molds right to the wrist. I like that feeling when it fits perfectly around your wrist.

This was made with a tube of beads from Joann Etc. and the dangle is a large palmwood bead. I had fun making it and it is a joy to wear.

Hope you are all having a great, crafty Saturday!!
