Here's How To... Make a Twisted Wire Bangle

This gilding metal bangle provides a solution to the problem of what to do with the crushed ends of wire that have been gripped in the vise during twisting. In this project, the loose ends are eliminated by joining them in a long loop to be twisted between two steel rods. The necessary force can therefore be applied without damage to the round wire.

Step  1
File both ends of the gilding metal wire flat using the hole in the bench peg. Form the wire into a double loop and bind with wire temporarily. This will make it easier to line up the ends for soldering Use hard solder to join up the ends of the wire.
