Wire Wrapped Copper Cuff with Amethyst and Fluorite Chips - Jewelry with Meaning - Peacefully Brings Order to Chaos

These bracelets are fun and easy to make.

Use a heavy copper ga. like a 14 ga. If you have a bracelet mandrel, form the wire around the mandrel at the size you want, leaving extra length on the end to coil. If you don't have a mandrel, free form the wire into a cuff form, leaving extra length on the ends to coil.

Coil the ends, using a round nose pliers. Hammer the form on an anvil to give it tinsel strength. Now you have a vague cuff shape to work with.

Using 24 ga copper wire, begin at the base of the coiled end, and wrap the 24 ga wire around the cuff form, spiraling up the form as you go. Keep the wraps tight!

When you are about 1/3 of the way up, start adding your stone chips to the wire, and wrap 3 times in between each stone. Do this across the top of the bracelet about a 1/3 of the way. Now stop adding the stones, and wire wrap the cuff form, down to the base of the opposite coil, so that the whole cuff, excluding the coils has been wrapped in copper.

Now you can free form and shape the cuff to the size you are wanting, or to your wrist!!!

Choose any type of stone chip, swarovski crystal or mix and match!!

What is your favorite stone?

All of my jewelry creations are based on the metaphysical properties of the stones or the colors that are incorporated. Jewelry should be a window to our soul, a protector of our emotions and a companion to our spirit. All of my other creations come directly from my heart in hopes they touch yours as well. Celebrate yourself with healing jewelry, and other gift ideas made with love!

Although I do live a lifestyle that is richly enhanced with healing crystals, crystal energy, and universal energies, some do not, and that being said, I must say - Crystal meanings, metaphysical and spiritual healing lore is lore for inspiration, folklore, reference, and entertainment only. Crystal and spiritual healing lore is not a prescription, diagnosis or healthcare information. See a doctor or other healthcare practitioner for all health issues.
