Making a memory wire bracelet is a great beginners project. It’s quick, easy and fun to make. Memory wire looks like a spring with many coils. The more coils you use, the wider your bracelet will be. You will need a sufficient amount of beads for a wider bracelet. Bigger beads will be great if you prefer a chunky look. You can use any kind of beads for this bracelet in any color scheme.

What you need:

  • 2 ½ to 3 coils of bracelet memory wire
  • beads
  • round nose pliers
  • memory wire cutters
  • Step 1:
