Infinity Bracelet Workshop
If you love the look of wire and beads and want to learn how to make a bracelet entirely out of wire, then this workshop is for you! In this workshop, you will learn how to make a continuous figure eight out of one piece of wire that will serve as the base or core of the the bracelet, and you will learn how to sew beads onto this base/core for a beautiful and finished look. The loops on this bracelet provide a sturdy base on which to add beads with wire. Once you learn this technique, you will only be limited by your own imagination and creativity! You will learn how to make the base of this bracelet, how to make any additional base in a different size and how to add beads to the loops with wire.
