Summer Slide Bangle

By Natalie

18 gauge German Wire
(5) two-hole slide beads

Wire cutters
Chain nose pliers
Round nose pliers
Nylon jaw pliers
Dowel rod

1. Cut a 28" piece of the 18 ga. German Wire. Use the nylon jaw pliers to straighten it.

2. Using a dowel rod, bend the wire in half to create a soft bend.
3. Place a two-hole slide bead onto the wire. Push it all the way to the curve at the end.

4. Using the dowel again, make a curves on each piece of wire just to the side of the two-hole slide bead that was just added.

5. Place another two-hole slide bead onto the wires.

6. Continue to follow steps 3-5 until you have reached your desired length.

7. Once the bracelet is the length you want, twist the two ends of wire together. Make the twist approximately 1/2" long.

8. Cut the ends of the wires so that they are 2" long.

9. Using the round nose and chain nose pliers, make a spiral on each of the 2" wires.

10. Bend the two spirals to create a hook. This is the clasp and it will hook into first loop that you made.
