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. For the bird dangle, she threaded some 4mm beads and a bird bead onto a ball end head pin. The loop of the head pins are then fastened to each loop of the memory wire for a finishing tough.
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!
Here Anne created a sea glass seed bead memory wire bracelet using our Ocean Mega Mix spacer beads SKU 1303-MEGA. She finished the ends by gluing on some cute fish beads. Darling!
