For Christmas my godmother Madi gave me a lovely bracelet as a very thoughtful gift. It was made about 20 years ago by a family friend I was close to growing up. However, I have big bones and it could barely clasp around my wrist. So I decided to convert it into something I would wear more often. Keep reading to see my DIY on how to make this wire wrapped necklace...
First I assembled my materials, and disassembled the bracelet. All of these supplies should be available at your local craft store.
I learned to wire wrap in elementary school, from the friend who made the original bracelet. It can be a little tricky to get the hang of at first, but once you do it's a snap.
Add individual or clusters of beads separated by lengths of chain to create your necklace. I should note that I should have slipped my chain onto the loop before wrapping. Whoops!
Every so often I do something silly like forget to slip the chain onto my loop. No big deal fixing it is easy. Just be sure to twist apart the chain link rather that spread it open. Spreading can mess with the shape and makes it harder to close up tight.
And that's all there is to it.
