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!
You’ll find the wire chain bracelet tutorial right here on Craftsy.
Thanks for visiting!
