Wire-Wrapped Bracelet feat. Dakota Stones
Jem Hawkes is back and here to show us how to create an elegant looking wire-wrapped bracelet featuring Jesse James Bead Strands featuring Dakota Stones. Dakota Stones are high quality natural stone beads perfect for adding a gemstone touch to any design. Today Jem will be showing us an intermediate level wire-wrapping technique perfect for new wire-wrappers who want to challenge themselves. Once mastered this wrap can be used to create beautiful links that can come together to create a necklace, bracelet, or more.
Today Jem will be using beads from the Amethyst Eclipse bead strand. We'll also be taking a peek at the Cotton Candy Sunrise and the Moonlit Stroll bead strands. All of these strands feature 8-10mm sized round Dakota Stones beads. We recommend the rounds to start but once you grow more experienced this technique can be used on different shapes of beads.
