My sister and I have fell in love with these bracelets, as they actually fit our freakishly thin wrists. You can buy them in the stores (but they can be really expensive–so we leave that to our boys to buy for us….just kiddingggg 😉 ). We took a look at the one my sister had, and decided it could totally be DIYable. The wire we purchased (pictured below) worked pretty well, though misshaped a tiny bit. Next time, we actually want to try wire hangers! They’ve got the stability that’s needed, and won’t wear over time. So when we do try that, I’ll let you know how it turns out!
We started by cutting about 14 inches of the wire (though for our wrists we needed something like 12 inches. We bent the wire upward on one side (just less than an inch from the edge of the wire), and downward on the other side. Then, we closed the loops. This step is a little annoying, as you have to close the loop with the other wire going through, so what I do is, make the loop, and then open it back up just enough to let the wire in, and then close it. It can’t be too tight, otherwise the bangle won’t adjust.
