Peppermint/Bronze Memory Wire Bracelet: Project Instructions

Peppermint/Bronze Memory Wire Bracelet: Project Instructions

Posted by Eureka! Beads on 20th Mar 2019

Memory wire bracelets are not only simple to make, they're easy to wear as well! Memory wire is a hardened wire that holds its shape - which means that a clasp is not necessary as the bracelet can be wrapped onto the wrist.

MATERIALS REQUIRED

  • 7 loops bracelet memory wire
  • 70 plain metal balls
  • 70 large star bead caps
  • 35 x 8mm round faceted glass crystals
  • 34 plain curved metal tubes

TOOLS REQUIRED

  • Twirly Wirlie Pliers
  • Memory Wire Cutters

INSTRUCTIONS

Take your bracelet memory wire and twirl one end into a loop using the twirly wirlie pliers. Thread on:

  • a plain metal ball
  • an large star bead cap
  • an 8mm round faceted glass crystal
  • an large star bead cap
  • a plain metal ball
  • a plain curved metal tube

Repeat the pattern until you are happy with the length (we used 35 round faceted glass crystals). Finish by threading on another plain metal ball, an large star bead cap, an 8mm round faceted glass crystal, an large star bead cap and one more plain metal bead. Cut off any excess memory wire using your memory wire cutters, leaving 15mm of wire bead-free. Use your twirly wirlies to make a full loop at the end of the wire. Your bracelet is now ready to wear - to put on, simply twist around your wrist.
