[DIY] LOVE Bracelet – idea per San Valentino

Da un po’ di settimane sto seguendo il blog di Glitter ‘N Glue, ci sono moltissime idee da realizzare con pochi materiali e dal risultato eccellente. Oggi voglio pubblicare un tutorial per creare un braccialetto di San Valentino, qui trovate il link al post originale. Io stavo pensando di scriverci il mio nome o una parola diversa (non trovo che San Valentino sia una vera e propria festa) come al solito vi farò sapere non appena ci proverò. Ecco a voi, buon divertimento!

Glitter N Glue DIY Wire LOVE Valenties Bracelet

“Now we all know how I love a nice piece of chunky statement jewelry, but sometimes something dainty, delicate and demure is all you need (<- please read in your best Southern accent). I’ve seen these wire bracelets floating around Pinterest for awhile now and they continue to catch my eye. I don’t often work with wire, but these style bracelets are just too adorable not to give one a try. I dreaming of a copper (the broke girl’s rose gold) bracelet that reads LOVE in honor of Valentine’s.

Glitter N Glue DIY Wire LOVE Valenties Bracelet MATERIALSMaterials: Wire*, pliers (round and flat nose), nippers

* I used a 16 gauge wire for this project.

TIP: When shopping for wire remember the lower the gauge number, the stronger your wire will be.

Glitter N Glue DIY Wire LOVE Valenties Bracelet CUTMy local jewelry supply store was out of copper wire so I picked up this 16 gauge wire from the hardware store. Cut a piece of wire that is about 8 inches in length.

I gave this the old college try and was very informal with my wrapping. I basically pulled, bended and forced the wire to lay the way I wanted. It took me a few tries before I got something I really like, but I guess practice makes perfect when it comes to this sort of thing. However, Aimee from Swellmaydehas a wonderful wire wrapping tutorial that’s really helpful. She shows you how to create the words by tracking over your own handwriting.

Happy Valentine’s my loves! xo”
