Now Maggie's Handcraft Studio has Copper!

Posted by Maggie | E-Mail The Author

I just got in some fabulous copper wire! Wow, it is so fun to work with, I really love starting with just a big batch of wire and making every component that goes into a piece of jewelry!

Here are some pictures of my work in progress:

Here is how I coil wire to make rings. (SPecial thanks to the friend who lent me the knitting needles!)

Here are the rings after I cut them. Then I file the ends of each ring.

Each S-link is formed by hand with pliers. I get a little better at making them look the same with each bracelet I make.

The s-links are hammered both for hardening and because I prefer the flattened look. Plus it is a good way to get out some frustrations!

Here is an example of the link bracelet!

Here is a great bracelet I made with wonderful Czech glass buttons added to the links on a copper bracelet! This can be found in my Ebay store!
