I Could Chuck it all in the Recycle Bin . . .

. . . because it’s aluminum!  Yes, I fiddled with some 16 gauge aluminum craft wire, my pliers, and a chasing hammer today.  It was a learning experience.

spiral link practiceI’m thinking of wiring a bunch of these spirals together for a bracelet, but I’m stuck for clasp ideas right now.

When I tired of that, I got out the 12-gauge and made the most basic cuff bracelet known to mankind.  I may dress it up with beads at some point.
