    This project follows a torc bracelet shape, which creates an open curve that fits around the wrist. To start, I place the end of the wire in the centre of my wrist and create a curve that looped to the centre underside of my wrist (use the round pliers ot help mould if needed), back to the centre:

    Next, make the bow embellishment. This was simple made by cutting a 10cm length of wire and making a looped bow design - I opted for this continuous design to avoid any sharp ends, but whichever bow design your prefer can be used.
