Well here is my second attempt at this bracelet. I actually had a more difficult time getting this one done because I couldn't get the wraps tight and even. They still aren't, but for now, this is what I've got. I was still working with wire that wasn't quite right. In this case, I used a slightly larger gauge for the frame and a dead soft for the wrap rather than half hard. I usually think that using soft rather than hard is easier, but I'll be curious to see if it is true when I get the right wire. I can't figure out how the instructor doesn't scratch the heck out of it when using the pliers. Another big thing I'm working on!
Okay so here it is: (one of the photos includes my first chainmaille bracelet.)
