How to Make a Wire Link Chain Bracelet

by Cindy on July 25, 2014

Looking for a new project this summer?  Learning to make your own handmade wire chain is a great foundation for jewelry designers.  Only a handful of tools are needed and there’s no need to solder, making this a great project to work on whenever time allows.   I like to wear my handmade wire chains in a mismatched group of bracelets.

Please visit my recent post on the Craftsy blog for a step-by-step photo tutorial.  You can change the link shape and change the type of metals used – you’ll see it’s easy to customize this wire link.  That’s what I love about wire:  it is incredibly versatile!
