Project

Chunky Yarn Bangle

This statement bracelet, from Erica Domesek of P.S. -- I Made This, makes the perfect holiday gift for your fashionista friends.

Materials

  3. Step 3

    Slide yarn under one coil, and wrap around until the entire bracelet is covered.

    I noticed quite a few people asking for the gauge of wire to use in this project. I'm not the author, but I am a jewelry & mixed media artist, so I thought I could pass on some advice.First, they used "armature wire" & I believe it only comes in 1 gauge, so whatever you can find, should be good. Secondly,you can also use wire mesh,a section of plastic 16oz bottle, hardware mesh (ask at hardware store- cool product/inexpensive/MANY creative uses!)U can Email me for more! nadiahutchins@hotmail.com

    you can get the rhinestone chain on ebay. It comes from china, but a lot cheaper than here. The store is called stuff resource

    You can get the rhinestone chain from etsy and probably a craft store like Joann's Fabrics
