My new beady friend and wire worker extraordinaire, Jem Hawkes, blew my mind on last week's Facebook Live when she showed me how to use the Artistic Wire Wire Crinkler Tool to make these gorgeous bracelets! Of course, if you don't have a Wire Crinkler, you can make the base zig zag with pliers, but why do it the slow way if you can zip the wire through the Crinkler in mere seconds? Jem takes us through both techniques, and several variations of this gorgeous design. I can already think of a whole bunch of other application for these crinkles. Can you? You can watch the whole video in this Facebook Live . A bit about Jem: Jem Hawkes is a designer and tutor specialising in wirework and gemstone jewellery. In addition to originating her own brand of unique jewellery designs and techniques, Jem is a jewellery tutor and teaches both via project led workshops and on her YouTube channel.
