12 Sep DIY: Barbed Wire Bracelets – Guest Contributor Kiah Leigh Rhode
by ATFDC Guest Contributor Kiah Leigh Rhode
- Wire (18 G)
- Jewelery Pliers and Wire Snips
- Masking Tape
First cover the pliers with masking tape so they don’t mark the wire
Then cut a length of wire (double the size of your wrist, with a little to spare) and twist together. Tighten with the pliers.
Now wrap a small length of wire around the bracelet. Do this for each “barb” you’d like.
Last, file down the rough edges. The bracelet may be a bit flexible at first, but over time the wire will harden.
Yet another bracelet to add to your wrist collection!
