I have always wanted to make a memory wire bracelet but can not figure out the beads I wat to use and this video helped me realize which ones you cannot use and a good idea on how to plan your own. These bracelets are so cool and I love the way it just hugs your arm. So easy to make too. My daughter-in-law made one for here mom and we put a pretty bead on the end before making the turn on ends. I love these colors together. Going to start one soon.

Very pretty and very easy. That's the bottom line on this one. It will make up quickly and the colors just depend on your tastes. Nothing really special is required. Might I suggest, if for any reason you need to cut memory wire, make sure you use cutters that say they are for that type wire. If not, you will ruin your cutters.

Sorry Sally, where on earth did I get Heather from???!! I have now followed your pattern and as I was turning the second end of the wire I thought "This would make a fantastic sparkling mobile" and would live up to my name. Anyway a great big thank you from me in Rothwell, Northants,UK.
