DIY: Rose Goldish (aka Copper) Wire LOVE Bracelet
Now we all know how I love a nice piece of chunky statement jewelry, but sometimes something dainty, delicate and demure is all you need (<- please read in your best Southern accent). I’ve seen these wire bracelets floating around Pinterest for awhile now and they continue to catch my eye. I don’t often work with wire, but these style bracelets are just too adorable not to give one a try. I dreaming of a copper (the broke girl’s rose gold) bracelet that reads LOVE in honor of Valentine’s.
* I used a 16 gauge wire for this project.
TIP: When shopping for wire remember the lower the gauge number, the stronger your wire will be.
I gave this the old college try and was very informal with my wrapping. I basically pulled, bended and forced the wire to lay the way I wanted. It took me a few tries before I got something I really like, but I guess practice makes perfect when it comes to this sort of thing. However, Aimee from Swellmayde has a wonderful wire wrapping tutorial that’s really helpful. She shows you how to create the words by tracking over your own handwriting.

Happy Valentine’s my loves! xo
