I watched this video through 3-4 times. gathered my materials and tried it for myself.. my seed beads were a little large so i had to make an adjustment right off the bat, i ended up going with 8 wraps then 5, 3mm swarovski crystals with 3 wraps between each.

After Building all the links. i found that my arc for the links was a tad bit tighter than what was shown and everything was somewhat tighter.

All in all, even though i had to deviate some from "The Plan", it turned out nice with my own unique look.

I mastered the chainmail pieces and thought I would have equal ease moving to wirework. Surprise! Wireworking is much more of a challenge.

This is a fun piece as it has some elements of wire wrapping with finer guage wire as well as forming specific shapes consistently with heavier guage wire.

I have been working on this bracelet intermittently with other projects of the chainmail type. While the chainmail made my hands tired after a couple hours holding pliers, this wire working requires calused finger tips. Holding the crystals in place while wrapping wire has my left index finger raw after three or four links. I made a padded finger cover just for this, which helps.

I am getting better at the wire wrapping and the links are looking more and more consistent. This is such a great tutorial for me. Thank you!

Happy New Year!

I has made this bracelet several times now. Each time gets easier and easier. The last one I made was another practice piece, gave it to my mother. She had worn it to one of her bingo nights and got a lot of compliments. So with that being said I have to make one for her bingo friend. I really enjoyed making this bracelet. It went from, OMG I will never be able to make this...to...heck I can do this now. Now that I have the pattern down I can tweak this and give my own creativity. Thank you so much for a great class as always!
