Slainte Bracelet

Supplies:

20 gauge copper wire

green glass tube beads

needle nose or round nose pliers

wire cutter

file

mandrel

Directions:

Using a wire jig and the directions posted here, create 5 four leaf clovers with copper wire.

Slainte 1

To wire wrap the green beads, cut about three inches of copper wire (adjust for the size of your tube bead) and loop one end of it. Slide the bead onto the wire and up against the loop.

Slainte 2

At the end of the bead, bend the wire into another loop and wrap the wire around the end of the loop.

Slainte 3

Loosely wrap the wire over the bead and then wrap around the base of the first loop. Trim off any excess wire and file the ends.

Use a mandrel to create ten copper wire jump rings (you can make double loops for extra strength if you wish to.)

Attach the clovers and the wire wrapped beads, alternating, with the jump ring.

Create a hook to attach the jump rings on each end, using the same method.
