Enjoyable, Easy Project, Lovely Rustic Bracelet Review by jules
Rating

I am new to metal working and have only just started to learn all the basic techniques such as making my own jump rings, soldering etc. I found this project just challenging enough to push my very limited skills forward without leaving me feeling overwhelmed or unable to complete the bracelet.

I'm really happy with the bracelet I have made, whilst it is by no means perfect I feel encouraged enough by the results to continue building on my skills and to try another project.
