Be right on trend with these simple wire wrapped bangles with Chaton prong settings. These bangles are just the right balance of free form spirit and elegant bling.
To create these bangles you will need:
- Prong settings
- Chaton crystals
- Wire (I used a 20 gauge)
- Flush Cutters
- Needle Nose Pliers
- A bracelet mandrel or a tin can
(now, I haven’t tried the tin can, but it is round and by theory should work).
- Rubber mallet (optional)
Wrap your wire around a bracelet mandrel (or tin can) multiple times. Cut off the ending point where the starting point began with your flush cutters.
Step 2 (optional):
While the wire is still on the bracelet mandrel, use a rubber mallet to texture the wire to your desired look.
Create a loop on each of the ends of the wrapped wire.
Insert your Chaton crystals into your prong settings and bend down the prongs (watch the video on prong setting for more tips). Thread the prong setting onto the two open loops from Step 3.
Wrap some wire around all of the wire strands on both sides of the Chatons.
Repeat. This is super fun so be prepared to have an armload!!
