Tutorial: Recycled Bangle

Woo Hoo! Here's the first Wink Artisans Tutorial... I'm so excited about this! For this tutorial, I'm reusing a broken earring and a copper bracelet found at a yard sale.  I've paired the two items along with sterling silver wire to give them life one more time.  Want to see how I did it?  Check out the tutorial video below.




Here's what you'll need if you decide to make it yourself.  Have fun!
