Enameled Wire Bangles

These are my first attempts at making wire enameled bangles. They weren’t totally successful. It’s hard to see in the picture. The enamel kept popping off in slivers, probably from thermal shock.

The bottom one is made with 6 gauge wire. It had the most enamel cracking off. I finally took my alundum stone and just filed down all the rough spots. Kind of made it look more organic. The top one is out of 8 gauge wire. The enamel stayed on better. I have more experimenting to do before I can sell these.
