- Make a “bead soup” by mixing all of your beads together in a small bowl or dish.
- Wrap the entire cuff with the 24 gauge copper wire.
- Cut approx. 24” of copper wire and anchor one end of the wire near the center of the cuff by wrapping it around the cuff a few times. String beads randomly, a few inches at a time, and begin wrapping back and forth in a random pattern on the cuff. Take care not to let the wire pull the top and bottom of the cuff together.
- Keep wrapping and adding beads as desired. Add more wire when required. Stop when you are happy with the result. Enjoy!
