"Want to make a quick DIY gift? Try a memory wire bracelet! Memory wire is jewelry wire that is permanently shaped in a coil. You wrap it around your arm and don’t need a clasp, so it’s easy to make and easy to wear! We have a video showing how to make this memory wire bracelet. We'll show you how to feed on the crystals and finish the ends. Watch the video, then follow the instructions to make your own. A great project for beginners!"

This memory wire bracelet can be made with all kinds of beads! And with as few or as many coils as you like. This is a great project for a girls' night craft!

Materials List

  • Memory wire, large bracelet size
  • 48 Swarovski crystal bicones, 4mm, Caribbean Blue Opal
  • Seed beads, size 15/0, turquoise
  • Round-nose pliers
  • Wire cutters (not your good jewelry snips)

Instructions

  1. Count three complete coils of memory wire, add an inch, and cut with the wire cutters. Memory wire is harder than regular jewelry wire, so we recommend you use craft snips and not your good jewelry wire cutters. We wouldn’t want your good cutters to get marred!

  2. Bend a loop into the end of the memory wire using the round-nose pliers. This loop will keep the beads from sliding off.

  3. To bead the memory wire, feed a complete coil’s worth of seed beads onto the memory wire.

  4. Next feed on the crystal bicones. We used 48 bicones to make a complete coil. Finally add another coil’s worth of seed beads.

  5. Finish the bracelet by making another loop in the other end of the memory wire. If you have a lot of wire left after the beads you can trim it and then make the final loop with the round-nose pliers.

Memory wire bracelets are easy peasy. This project is a great way to make a quick gift for someone or to just make a new accessory for yourself. This pattern tutorial includes a great video to show you how to make this bracelet along with step by step written instructions to back the video up for those who work better with a pattern.

I love this idea and look. It's so easy and so pretty. But I have three requirements for a project and inexpensive is the third. Using Swarvoski crystals blew that for me. In order to get 48, I have to purchase two packs. That's around $12, then the other seed beads and memory wire and I will be over $20. I will use Czech crystals, and that will knock $7 off the price. They are just as pretty. Just remember not to use your regular jewelry cutters on memory wire.

Memory wire bracelets are very easy to make, and look great too. You just have to choose the right beads and the right colors. Ive made a lot of these in different wire length, colors and beads combination. Seems like I always have the right bracelet for each clothes I have, for each occasion.

This is simple and beautiful. I would try making this!! It would make a great gift.

I LOVE these blue opals. I've been obsessed with opals recently, so these crystals are perfect. They definitely remind me of the ocean.
