Item details

This bracelet features annealed copper wire that you can easily make with your own kiln or with a torch. This class is suitable for the intermediate wire wrapper.

The tutorial itself is 6 pages long, and includes 15 photographs that help make the instructions very clear. Additionally, there is a 3 page document entitled "Taming your Hard-to-Work Wire" that explains the annealing processes for both the torch and the kiln as well as using pickle for cleaning firescale off of your own annealed wire.

If you need any help, I'm an email away. The main tutorial is a PDF file, 940 KB in size, with the Taming tutorial, also a PDF at 290 KB in size. You will be provided a link to download these files once you have completed the payment process.

I use copper, but this bracelet can also be made in sterling. If you use dead-soft silver, you can make this, although I wouldn't recommend it for your first project. I don't include the annealing process for silver, as it's rare that I work with it. Keep in mind that you'll need strong hands to use wire that is not kiln- or torch-annealed. I'm not saying it isn't possible, it just isn't as easy as using the kiln-annealed wire that I like to use in my classes.

Materials needed are:
16 gauge wire(base)
24 gauge wire(embellishing wire)
bead soup mixture

For further details on materials and tools required, take a look at the bottom photo. It is the front page of this tutorial. Copyright information is provided on this page as well. Basically, I'm fine with you making these bracelets to sell, as long as you aren't mass-producing them.

I hope you enjoy this tutorial as much as my students have enjoyed the class. Look for more tutorials coming soon.

Thanks for looking!
