Like most Americans these days, I like to watch YouTube and other websites to learn new techniques. Since I have become addicted to making jewelry, I’ve been choosing tutorials that increase my skill level a little at a time.
A couple weeks ago, one of the beading sites I stalk had a video and instructions on wire wrapping. I’ve never tried wire wrapping but I had most of the components for it, including buttons. I had accidentally purchase buttons during a sale and hadn’t quite figured out what to do with them.
And then voila.
Like magic this video gave me an idea—wire wrapped bracelets with a button focal. So, this last weekend I sat down and made these:
I deviated a little by adding the seed beads, but over all, I like how they turned out.
Until next time!
