By now you should all know how much I love bracelets... making them, wearing them, stacking them, and buying them from other artists. These memory wire bracelets can help you create something simple to embellish. I mixed fibers in with my beads, celebrating all the beautiful colors of Fall.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step

Step 1

First I cut my memory wire, making sure that both of my ends were lining up. I then formed a loop at one end and began stringing my beads.

Step

Step 2

Rather than just stringing beads onto my memory wire, which can yield beautiful designs on its own, I chose to add ribbon and waxed linen. To knot these onto the memory wire, double over the chosen stringing material and knot around the wire. After each knot, I would cross the linen/ribbon behind the wire and knot it back around the top as shown in the image.

Step

Step 3

Once all of the beads and fibers have been added and my bracelet was complete, I finished it off with a loop just as I started with. I like loops because you can embellish with ribbons or charms if you want to :-)

Step

Step 4

To attach my charms to this bracelet, I strung a Kylie Parry piece to a bit of leather, then strung the leather through the loop in the memory wire. A knot will hold it securely.
