Memory wire bracelet project:
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 wirebeadsround nose pliersmemory wire cutters
Cut off 2½ to 3 coils of memory wire. Grip one end of the memory wire with the middle part of your round nose pliers.
Make a loop by moving your pliers away from you.
Your finished loop should look like this.
Slide the beads onto the other end of the wire, and continue to do so until there is approx. ½ inch (12mm) of wire left.
Make another loop, the same way as the first, with the ½ inch of wire that is left.
To add a headpin to the end of your bracelet, follow the steps for how to make a loop on a headpin as described on the page
It’s up to you how you want to finish your bracelet:
- leave it exactly as it is
- add a headpin to one, or both ends of the bracelet
- add a charm to the end of the bracelet
