We (my daughter, Laura, and granddaughter, Faith) used 14 gauge wire which we bought at Michael’s Craft Store. It’s really thick and easy to work with...
Here is the wire and a few of the charms we collected.
I cut off between 11” and 12” off the roll being careful not to make the wire misshapen.
Then you need little needle nose pliers to form a little loop and you have to turn it so that the other end of the wire can go right through it.
Put beads on the end that doesn’t have the loop.
Now put that end of the wire through the loop..
Add some feature beads..
After adding some feature beads make a closing loop. Loop around the bottom wire.... like this. If you have a bracelet to copy, it will be easier to understand. You need to make a rectangular box... one wire loop goes up and the other loop goes down as in the picture. It makes a little box .. a long box. This is the hardest part of making the bracelet, getting the loops in the right place so that the other end of the wire goes through it. Now you have closed the bracelet and it’s finished.
You can make your bracelet smaller by squeezing it... like this.
To make it larger, pull the wires apart until you have the right size.
Here are some of the bracelets we made.
Making these loops is easy but challenging to get them just right. A few of the bracelets came out sorta misshapen..

We had a lot of fun making these bracelets.
