Rich Metals Flower Bracelet Project

Recently, the three of us at The Bead Gallery had a 1 hr jewelry project challenge (edited for this replay), to see what this creative brain trust could come up with! The result of 6 hands, 3 beading masters, and 1 hour was this Rich Metals Flower Bracelet!

As Jamie (Jump Rings and Chain), Michelle (Metal Flower), and Jason (Clasp) had a ton of fun, we explained what we were doing, so that we could share what we knew about wire, metal work, dapping, metal cutting, shaping, hammering and more!

Here are the tools and supplies we used :)
