The links on this bracelet were created with 18 gauge round copper wire cut into 1-1/2 inch pieces. I bent the wire in half and created a loop on each side. I then hammered the center of the large bottom loop to give it a flatten look. The links were aged (patina) using liver of sulfur. The beads are Magnesite with a blueish green color. They are a great compliment to the copper wire.
