Iris teaches the tricks that make fusing a breeze. This contemporary peacock pattern evolved from the classic loop-in-loop chain. Students learn how to create and combine links to make a stunning chain bracelet.

This class has a running time of 42 minutes, 30 seconds.

Love this one... tried to mock this one up in Copper.. but i couldnt get the wire to bead up.. guess i will practice on Sterling then progress to the fine.

Thank you for making this video available to us.

We recommend going right to fine silver, as Iris instructs in the class video. You will not achieve the same ball/bead using copper or even sterling. Don't worry, you'll get the hang of it quickly!

Great tutorial! Very clear and easy-to-follow instructions. I just have one question.
When using 20-gauge wire for the links you used 18-gauge for the clasp. Would you then use 16-gauge for the clasp if you used 18-gauge for the links? Do you always go a little thicker for the clasp, or do you just like 18-gauge for clasps?
Thanks so much for the great class!

We like 18 gauge for this particular clasp. You could bump it up to 16g, but 18g works great.

This tutorial is great! I had only minimal torch experience at the onset. I only had one link fail. Two others did not work well the first go around with the fusing but I was able to prep them again for the join fuse and make them work. I increased my skill with the torch immensely and I ended up with a beautiful fine silver bracelet! This was my first fine silver piece. I am confident that I can take on other projects with fine silver. Thank you Iris!
