Memory wire bracelets are one the the easiest ways to make your own custom jewelry to match your favorite outfits. Memory wire is pre-formed into a circle and keeps it’s shape, making it perfect for bracelets and simple necklaces.
Beaded Bracelet Craft Supplies
What you Need to Make These Easy Beaded Bracelets:
- Bracelet-sized memory wire (available at any craft store)
- Round nose jewelry pliers (regular needle-nosed pliers will work, too)
- Large round beads of your choice
- Small round beads of your choice
- Wire cutters (not shown)
The great thing about memory wire is that it springs back into shape, so you can make a single loop bracelet or a multiple loop bangle. For the purposes of this tutorial, I’ll be showing you how to make a single loop bracelet.
Start by taking your memory wire and cutting off one loop, leaving about a two inch overlap. This size will fit almost any wrist.
Take one end of your wire, and using your round nose pliers, create a small loop in the opposite direction that the memory wire curves.
Your loop should look like this, and will keep your beads from sliding off the bracelet.
Now grab the open end of your wire, and start stringing on your beads in any pattern you’d like!. Here I did a simple one small, one big. Keep going until your bracelet is full of beads, and you like how it looks.
Leave about half an inch at the end of your bracelet to make another small loop the same way you did at the beginning.
And you’re done! Now you have an easy, pretty bracelet!
