TUTORIAL: Doodle Bangle Pair (Wire-Wrapped Bracelet Instructions)


Instant Digital Download

These colourful, on-trend bangles are sure to complement any outfit. I love the combination of different, antiqued metal colours to bring out the colour of the beads. Some colours shine in antiqued metals in a way that just can’t be replicated in silver.

****NOTE: This is a Set of Instructions ONLY - the materials and finished bracelet are NOT included in this listing****

There are 7 layers of wire in these bangles, so you can use artistic wire and still create a sturdy, usable bangle in reliable sizes.

These instructions include a simple, wire-only bangle as well as a bead-embedded version. These have been selling - and wearing - well in pairs!

This technique has over two dozen clear, close-up photos, nearly 25 steps and 12 pages. It gives you a solid foundation and allows for infinite diversions from the main steps to create a bracelet that’s uniquely yours.

Whatever your goal - making gifts or items for sale - you will find these bangles easy to make and popular with others.

The tutorial has two phases: A plain wire-only bracelet and a fully-decorated beaded bangle.

Hope you enjoy making these as much as I enjoyed putting these instructions together for you!

****List of Tools and Materials****

30” 20ga vintage bronze wire
12” 20ga copper wire
15” 24ga bronze-colored wire
24” 22ga antique copper wire
Chainnose pliers or Bent nose pliers
Flush Cutters
A fistful of beads in your favourite colourway - I always like the two-tone firepolished czech beads. At least 6, 6mm beads, although a combination of sizes is very attractive as well.

DELIVERY: The tutorial PDF will be available as a digital download after purchase.

Jewellery Tutorials are a perfect fit for me, which means my tutorials are perfect for you. Here's why:

* I'm a self-taught wire artist, since 1998, so I know what it's like to struggle with a new technique or to work without special tools, and you'll find workarounds in my tutorials. You'll also find many of my techniques are different from the usual since nobody was teaching when I was learning and I had to invent something new every time I was solving a problem!

* My day job is to write course curriculum for online, adult learners, and I'm good at it. So you'll find my tutorials have clear, concise, accurate instructions with photos for every step - even partial steps. I know how to teach you no matter how you learn best! Plus, I make jewellery to sell - and I sell a lot of it - so many of my techniques are designed to efficiently put into production, leading to tutorial stages which you can easily follow.

* I am also a graphic designer, so you'll find a consistent, readable layout on every page, photos that draw your focus to the relevant step, and constant clues to keep your place - even if you forget to staple and the whole thing falls apart!

Look for a unique wire style, lots of color, asymmetry, irregular gemstones, inexpensive non-tarnish wire, some steampunk elements, and even some polymer clay.

You keep reading, and I'll keep looking for exciting new ways to help you make jewellery!
