InspirationFX: Copper Spiral Bracelet

Get your creative juices flowing

Copper Spiral Bracelet
by: Kelly Garland

Simply
stack the beads on an eye pin and create a loop to finish off each section.
Connect with a single copper jump ring. 
 
Add
the toggle clasp with jumprings.
For extra durability and security – ensure your jump rings are worked
to hardness so they do not open with pressure. Copper is a soft metal, and you don’t want to lose your creation! 
Working metal to hardness happens
naturally with any manipulation of the metal but of course, you don’t
want to leave marks or distort your jump rings. I like to use nylon
jaw pliers and simply squeeze firmly several times over to harden (stiffen) the copper. 
I’ve also
added a wee drop of E6000 to each eye loop at the connection point
for added security. (Alternately – you can use wire and make a “wrapped loop” on each side.)
Happy
Creating!
