Circlet Mini Tutorial by DarkShadowfax Circlet Mini Tutorial by DarkShadowfax
Someone asked me how I made my circlets..

I'm assuming you already know how to work with pliers, etc, so I'm not going to describe everything in detail.
I'm not providing you with a design either (Heck, I'm too lazy to draw a design right now), so draw one yourself or try to copy the Crimsonvine Circlet.

Sorry for the crappo pictures, but I was particularly lazy this morning :/

I honestly wouldn't know. I live in the Netherlands - we don't have Michael's craft or JoAnn over here.

It's just regular iron wire? Got it at HEMA (Dutch store) for about €2 per 50m or so.

This is awesome thanks so much, if you dont want the circlet to be weak then just use a stronger gauge of wire like 16 or 14 mostly 16 cause 14 can be a bit hard to bend and shape :3

Thanks for the comment and tip :3 Its strength depends on the type of metal used as well.

1.1mm is about 18g I think.
0.8mm is uh.. 20g? o-o'

I must confess, this circlet is pretty weak because of the thin wires I used. >_> Then again, its cheap. I've got no right to complain xD
