Take one piece of wire and wrap around your mandrel 10 times making sure it’s not too tight so that you can remove the wrapped piece from the mandrel and get it onto the leather.
Using round nose pliers take the end of the wire and begin turning a coil in the wire. Transfer to flat nose pliers and continue coiling until you have 3 rings.
Continue wrapping the wire around the mandrel until the coil is level with it. Press the coil flat against the wrapped wire as shown. Trim the tail end of the wire on the underside with the coil on top.
Repeat steps 1 to 3 to create a second piece that mirrors the first.
File or sand out any tool marks and use LOS to oxidise both pieces together with a jump ring if you’re using a charm. polish back with wire wool, tumble or polish.
I actually decided that this particular charm was a little too large and I left it off so this is my finished bracelet…
I’ve been wearing this since I finished it and it’s very comfortable. I really like it as it is but if you want to add a charm there are smaller versions available like these cute little shells.
