Even a wood carving – pyrography – line art artist needs a hobby. Something that
is quick, fun, and inexpensive. something that you can work in the rec room,
and something that will make fantastic easy gifts.
My extra hobby is wire-bent, wire-wrapped copper jewelry!
The Wire-Bent Links Bracelet, shown above, is a fun design created from a selection of the over 300 bent-wire links that you can create featured in Easy & Elegant Beaded Copper Jewelry, published by Fox Chapel in 2011.
As you practice the wide variety of copper wire bent links that you can create you will end up with a wonderful pile of small, bright, shiny links – ready for your next jewelry project.
By creating a simple straight loop beaded link chain, you now have the bracelet base on which you can hang those links, using a jump ring or split ring. This is one design where the more the better, so let your creativity run wild.
