For the first one, Cheryl used beads from our sea glass bead mega mix, SKU 1303-Mega, our gold memory wire and attached a couple of our cute bird beads, SKU 914E with head pins and jump rings.

DIY Memory Wire Beach Glass Beaded Cuff Bracelet with Birds Recipe from eCrafty.com

How to make it:

Cheryl cut the memory wire to the length she wanted.  You can have one or two coils, like her bracelet above, or a lot like our bracelets shown at the bottom of this post.

Then she made a loop at one end of the wire.  She strung the beads on the wire in a random pattern.  When she was done putting the beads on, she made another loop at the end and then added the birds by putting each one on a head pin, making a loop at the top and using a jump ring to attach to the coil.

Creating with Memory Wire Tips:

To cut memory wire, you want to use OLD or heavy duty wire cutters, or use specially made memory wire cutters, not your good flush cutters.

To finish the ends: Bend the raw end around one open side of your round nosed pliers with a second set of pliers in your opposite hand.

You can keep it simple, as in the bracelets shown here, or you can add a quick little beaded or charmed dangle by using a headpin, jump ring and charm or extra crystal – See more samples on our blog, here. https://ecrafty.wordpress.com/2014/09/17/diy-easy-memory-wire-bracelet-recipes-from-ecrafty-com/

Memory wire can hold all kinds of things with holes! Try buttons, acrylic beads (for kids) even macaroni!

To finish the other end, simply make a second loop as above. Add a beaded dangle if you’d like. You can use some of our themed charms, or simply our “handmade” or “made for you” charms. You can also use our message charm mix – very fun – lots of choices!
