Description

When Susie asked me to create a piece using the Artistic mesh wire, I wasn’t sure what I would come up with, but I had so much fun playing, I made 3 pieces instead of just 1! With this fun product, the color choices – and design possibilities – are endless!

Shanna Steele, Aunties Beads Designer

Instructions:


  1. Using a pair of scissors, cut a piece of wire mesh measuring about 20 inches in length.
  2. Tie a square knot as close to one end as possible.
  3. Drop a bead into the mesh tube. Tie a square knot above the bead. (You may want to leave a little slack between the bead and the knot so you can fluff the mesh later on.)
  4. Repeat step 3 until you have the desired number of beads.
    NOTE: If you are using 12 or 14mm beads (or any combination of those 2 sizes), you will probably want to use a total of 6 beads. If you are using 16mm beads, 5 beads should be enough.
  5. If you would like a little more texture to the piece, pull gently at the mesh around each bead.

Attaching the ribbon ends:
  1. Use your ribbon ends to determine how much mesh to cut off each end. Cut the mesh and pull it so it will lay flat inside the ends.
  2. Use your chain nose pliers to flatten the ribbon ends over the mesh.
  3. Attach a split ring and half the clasp on each side to finish the piece.

Attaching the glue-in toggle:
  1. Trim your mesh on each end so it measures about ½” in length.
  2. Put a dab of Zap-a-Gap inside one of the glue-in toggle ends. Fold one end of the mesh over and put it inside half of the glue-in toggle. Push so that the clasp goes over the mesh end and covers any fraying you may have.
  3. Repeat on the other end to complete the bracelet.
