Faux Barb Wire Bracelet 

Sara loves to make jewelry with remnant wire. Remnant wire meaning the spare wire she cut for a project that is too small for a necklace, but long enough that it can be used for something. She did not use remnant wire for this project in particular, but this bracelet is a great candidate for that. You can use any color of wire you want for this design.

Tools
Regular Crimpers
Cutters
Magical Crimping Pliers
Chain Nose Pliers


Instructions

Step 1: Cut two 8 inch strands of wire as well as twelve 2 inch strands of wire.

Step 2: Use two 8 inch strands (the base wires) to string 1 crimp tube, move to the center and crimp. Except to attach the clasp in Step 7, all crimps are crimped using the Magical Crimping Pliers.

Step 3: String 1 crimp tube on 2 strands coming out of the center crimp tube. Then, String 1 crimp tube onto both wires, stopping about an inch from the middle and crimp. Repeat two more times and three times on the opposite side of the middle crimp tube.

Step 4: There are 12 open crimps sliding back and forth on the base wires. Thread a 2 inch strand through an open crimp tube and crimp in the middle of the 2 inch strand. Repeat for the other 11 sliding crimps.

Step 5: Now, you will see the 2 inch strands are overlapping in 10 spots. Use the two overlapping wires to string 1 crimp tube and crimp. Repeat in all 10 spots. The wires that stick out should not match each other in length. They can all be different.

Step 6: Cut off one base wire on both sides of the design, leaving 1 base wire tail on both sides to attach to a clasp.

Step 7: And finally, use the tail to string 1 crimp tube and the loop of the clasp. Pass back through the tube and crimp using Regular Crimping Pliers. Trim the excess wire. Cover with a crimp cover. Repeat on the other side.
