Memory Wire Bracelet Jewelry Instruction

How to make a memory wire bracelet.

You will need the following:

Memory wire (bracelet size)

Beads (preferably round beads similar in size to each other, we recommend 8mm beads)

Wire cutters

Round nose pliers

To make your bracelet:

This is one of the easiest projects to make and perfect for the beginner beader.

Decide how many strands you want your bracelet to be. If you decide you want the bracelet to be two stands, cut off two loops of the memory wire, however, add about two inches of wire to your measurement before cutting.

Using a beading board, lay out your design. Measure your wire along the beading board and then lay out your design making it two inches shorter than the length of your wire.

Using your round nose pliers make a loop using one inch of the wire at one of the ends of the memory wire. The video will show how to do this in greater detail.

String your beads onto the wire using the end of the wire that does not have a loop on it. Once you have strung all the beads onto your wire, using the remaining wire make another loop at the end of the wire using your round nose pliers.
