Freeform Wire Wrapping

These "messy" (aka freeform) wire wrapped bracelets are fun to make. I start with lots and lots of 20 ga dead soft sterling silver wire and create the wrapped elements. I oxidize them and sand them by hand with 800 grit sand paper to highlight just a small amount of the shiny silver.

The elements are connected with jump rings and decorative dangles are added in between. Voila, a bracelet is born! jewelry bracelet wire wrapped sterling silver oxidized

I currently have 2 of these bracelets listed in my etsy shop. To receive special offers and news, please sign up for my etsy shop newsletter.

Hi Vickie,
This is really lovely. A friend of mine tried to teach me wire wrapping last year...that's when I decided jewelry making was out of the question for me! Wire wrapping isn't easy!
