    Cut a short (20cm approx) length of the thinner wire. Create a right angle bend about 1cm from one end, hold this along the length of the wire and begin tightly wrapping around the bangle, moving towards your hand. Wrap about 5 times before tucking the end under the wrapped section and cutting off the excess.

    Measure the bangle around your wrist allowing an extra 1.5cm to create the hook. Cut off any excess wire (use household pliers on thicker wire so not to dent your nice jewellery pliers!). Use another piece of thinner wire to create another wrapped section approx halfway around the bangle.
