ccswaps is having a Bracelet Swap. I picked up Linda Jones book, "Creating Wire and Beaded Jewelry" it's great for beginners like me. Great step by step photos. I wanted to make a bracelet that stood on it's own, but also had room for charms if the recipient desired. I used 20 gauge silver colored wire. Also made caged beads to add on. I added some drop beads to the ends of the caged beads and in between the caged beads. Here's the finished bracelet. Depending on the recipient's wrist size, I may need to make some adjustments.
