Thin Bangle Series #4 - Bead Encrusted

Oooh, don't you love this bangle? 

To make it, you need:
  • a thin metal bangle
  • 24 gauge wire
  • a handful of small to medium beads (mine are all glass) of any color palette you choose
  • at least two colors of E beads, aka size 6 seed beads, to coordinate
  • wire cutters

Do this:
1. Cut a piece of wire about a yard long. Wrap one end around bangle to begin.

2. Stringing on one bead at a time. wrap the small to medium beads to go around the bangle.  When you come to the end of the wire, finish as you began by wrapping the end a couple times. Start a new wire whenever needed.

3. Go around the bangle again, adding more small beads and the E beads, to fill in the gaps.

That's it! You can add as many beads as you wish.

Take your vitamin C!
