Wirework Bracelet Beading Ideas
I had gone to a gem shop and found these wonderful stone beads that I thought would make great focal beads for a bracelet. I used memory wire.I mixed different fire polished beads and crystals and a few spacers. I loved the color combinations. The end beads are glued on as I do not like […]
I was feeling summery and wanted to make something to suit my mood. I came up with this bracelet which is made of vintage Lucite flower charms in various pastel shades. The charms are wire wrapped onto a silver plated chain. I have finished the bracelet with a classic silver plated heart toggle clasp.
For this piece I crocheted 28 gauge non-tarnish silver Artistic Wire with keshi pearls around the edges. I love the challenge of turning a hard material such as wire into soft and feminine pieces, as it is so unexpected. When I see people put them on and be amazed at how soft and touchable they […]
I started with two pieces of 24 gauge silver plated wire and twisted them together. At various intervals I strung pearls and turquoise gemstones on one wire strand and twisted the other wire around them. I repeated this technique to create 5 strands, and then I tangled the strands together in a random way.
This is a cuff style bracelet that was woven with silver plated wire and white glass pearls. First, I created a 20 gauge wire frame. Next, I wove in 3 sizes of glass pearls to create an impression of texture. A hook and eye closure finishes the piece. The look is gorgeous and opulent.
I used these pretty green glass floral beads to complete this bracelet. I used copper wire for wrapping to bring out the brilliance of the green beads. I attached Swarovski crystals in 6 and 4mm size to head pins to form dangles. The clasp is made of 16 gauge copper and has been hammered. I […]
My cousin was the inspiration behind this bracelet. This bracelet reminds me of fog rolling over green meadow. I used metal connectors (Lost and Found) and “marble conicals” beads (Orient) The bracelet is simply constructed with looped 2″ straight pins in gunmetal with a gun metal closure. I added the heart (locket, Madame Delphine) in […]
Pamela Bruce wire-wrapped individual spiral-shaped shell pieces and burgundy-dyed freshwater pearls together with sterling silver wire to a sterling silver chain. What inspired her to create this bracelet is that she liked the way the shells looked, especially their color combination of browns, burgundies, pinks, beiges, and greens. She found the burgundy-dyed freshwater pearls to […]
I love wire work. I created this piece from leftover bits and pieces I had here and there: washers from my husband’s shed, buttons from my needlework box, charms from previous projects. I first created the base by making a loop and wrapping the loop on a metal washer and making another loop on the […]
I love flowers so I am always motivated to use flowers in my jewelry pieces. For this bracelet, I wire wrapped this amazing blue Czech glass beads and linked it to a couple of frosted blue acrylic flowers, which I have wire wrapped onto an antique bronze filigree flower connector.

The unique focal bead was the inspiration for this bracelet. I made a double eye-pin out of 18 gauge wire and attached it to two separate lengths of gold chain. I wanted to make the charms out of interesting beads I had in my collection, and I also wanted those beads to bring out the […]
Black and khaki lampworked beads, sterling silver wire and Hill Tribe beads and charms make this a unique and classic bracelet. Lampwork beads are made by melting narrow rods of glass by hand over an open flame (usually a torch). The glass is wrapped aound a thin metal rod (a mandrel), which later becomes the […]
I love wirework, and this piece is designed using simple wire wrapping techniques. You can make this with seed beads as the base or just chain. I made mine with Swarovski bicone size 6 in clear. I then made the dangles with Bali silver beads, pearls in grey and recycled glass beads I made from […]
Blue and green stones helped me create the name of this piece. I strung each bead section onto brass wire and did a simple loop to close each end. Each beaded wire section was attached to brass jump-rings. The focal is the brass filigree ring that I attached to the bracelet by wrapping both sides […]
