Materials List

  • Bracelet Memory Wire
  • Two Headpins
  • Assorted Glass Beads
  • Seed Beads to match Assortment
  • Spacer Beads
  • Hard Wire Cutters
  • Chain Nose Pliers
  • Round Nose Pliers
  • Rubber Earring Back

Instructions

  1. Cut the memory wire so that there is a 1-2" overlap on the ring. It is important to use the hard wire cutters on memory wire as they will damage the cutting blade of regular wire cutters.

  2. Place a rubber earring back about 1/2" from the end of the wire on one side. This will allow you to add beads and design your bracelet without being fully committed.

  3. Add beads as desired. I usually focus on the 3" that are in the center and then fill in the sides with the seed beads. You can switch the rubber stopper from one side to the other as needed. Make sure you leave about 1/2" on each side for finishing.

  4. Use the round nose or chain nose pliers to turn the end of the wire into a loop. We usually make loops with the round nose, but this is the one exception to where you may need to use a chain nose, as the wire is so firm you need to get all the leverage you can get. (this step will need to have an adults help). For comfort turn the wire away from the circle, that way it does not dig in to the wrist when worn and the added baubles hang right.

  5. Add a couple of beads to the headpins and make a simple loop with the round nose pliers, attach to the loop on the memory wire bracelet for a nice accent.

Memory wire is actually fun to work with and it is so easy too. I never thought of using a rubber earring back on the ends of the memory wire to hold your beads secure while making the bracelet and to protect from the rough wire ends. Learned a new trick looking at this tutorial.

What a simple, easy project yet so pretty. It's dainty and lovely in its simplicity. It can be made up in no time at all and in so many different colors. Just remember you can't cut memory wire with regular snips. I have ruined many a pair by doing that.thank you for sharing this.
