14-gauge square braid bare copper Artistic wire, sold in 2.5-foot (79cm) packages. 8 strands of Artistic wire are machine braided, and then drawn into a square shape, giving it four reflective surfaces and incredible texture. Make a simple bangle by wrapping the wire around a mandrel or bracelet shaping drum, and using 12-gauge Artistic wire crimp tubes to join the ends together. (Do not use 14-gauge crimp tubes on 14ga square wire.) The ends of this patterned wire can also be carefully un-braided, so you can add beads or other embellishments.
