Easy

Materials:

  • 16 gauge silver wire
  • 24 gauge silver wire
  • Small wire cutter
  • Small needle nose pliers
  • Hammer
  • Steel bench block

Instructions:

  1. Subtract a couple of inches for the finished size of the bracelet. Take the 16 gauge wire and loop it around until it is the required size. The opening should be in the middle of a long side of the loop.
     
  2. With your needle nose pliers, bend smaller lengths of 16 gauge wire to make the word "MOM". They should be all the same height and have curlicues at the ends of the "M"s.

  3. Pound the wire pieces flat with a hammer on a piece of steel. A concrete garage floor will work in a pinch. This will make the wire stronger and more jewelry-like.
     
  4. Place the "O" in the middle of your wire loop. The opening of the "O" should be opposite the loop opening. Cut short lengths of the 24 gauge wire and wrap them around the letters and the bracelet where they meet. I wrap just a few times just to hold them in place then finish wrapping when all of the letters are attached.
     
  5. Wrap wire between the "O" and the "M" curlicues to attach them together.

  6. Lastly, wrap the short wire where the "O" meets the split in the loop. By this time the bracelet will be stiff enough to make this wrap a little easier.
     
  7. Cut the ends off of the 24 gauge wire on the outside of the bracelet. Tuck and file if necessary. No sharp ends please. Lightly tap the small wire joints with a hammer to set them.
     
  8. Gently wrap your bracelet around a soup can to form the rounded shape. Adjust the shape with your hands.
