Three of the bracelets: one with off white beads, one with silver chain, one with blue beads

I bought some silver and gold bangle bracelets and thought they would be cute wire wrapped with small beads. So using 26 G artistic non tarnish wire I attempted to make some of them.

Here is my first attempt at doing this. The hardest part of doing this is keeping the beads straight and keeping the wire from kinking.

Green Czech beads 4mm with artistic 26 G wire and thin bangle used as a base.

I have a wire straightener tool so that helps. Takes the kinks out as you use quite a bit of wire to wrap it.

Blue glass beads, 4mm. They were a stretchy bracelet and i re-used the beads to do this

I did have to re-do one bracelet because I broke a glass bead and had to redo the whole thing. Do you like these?

I used large ball chain and wrapped around each ball with 26 G wire. This was more difficult to space out
