Valentine Brass Wire Bracelet

Love doesn't need to be complicated, we made this simple bracelet using:
1mm Brass Wire
A pair of Round Nose Pliers
A Ball Pein Hammer
A Steel Bench Block
Sterling Silver Solder Paste - Easy
Gas Torch
Midas Finish Seal Lacquer

Use your Round Nose Pliers to form the word love and then the flat side of a Ball Pein Hammer to flatten parts of, or all of the word on a Steel Bench Block. We then used a small amount of Easy Silver Solder Paste with a Gas Torch to hold the loops of the L,O and the E in place. Trim the lengths of wire either end of the word to the size of bracelet you require. For decoration tie a little knot in one end and solder the ends together. As an alternative fastening you could form a hook and eye.

If this design idea has whetted your appetite for making jewellery with wire, consider getting set up quickly and easily with our Beginners Wire Working Kit.
