A bracelet for me-and 3 for Izzy!

About this design:

I wanted to make something to go with grey. I have a lot of grey clothes (and hair):) so we went about picking colors from my stash. Found everything except memory wire. It’s in this bead room somewhere. So- instead spending the day looking for it- I found enough silver for the tile bracelets/ mine is rose gold- oh well…

Components:

These are memory wire bracelets. The grey is three different single bracelets and wired at the back with 4mm labradorite. The small grey are labradorite. I’m not sure on the other 2. The middle one is 8 mm beads wired with 22mm half round. I like the way it turned out. Izzy’s bracelets are 2 single memory wire bracelets with a 2 hole Czech tiles and 8/0 seed beads

    All stunning bracelets. I love the beads in the top one especially. You did such an excellent job on the wrapping. The Tila brackets are also very pretty. Good colors for fall.

    I’ve never used memory wire before…but I see it got good results for you. I like the one with the silver wire type links…that’s not memory wire is it?

    Yes, they are all memory wire. The gray bracelet is 3 single bracelets and then I put them together with about a 2 1/2inch piece of 18 g wire. Each bead in the middle is put on separately and wrapped. the memory wire serves as a sort of base and you wrap around that middle wire. It gets a little wonky while adding the bead but pops right back into shape.

    These are incredible Robin, I am loving all those gray stones. I also really like the colors you chose for the tile bracelets – the bottom one looks even a little Christmas-y! Love it

    What a fabulous group of bracelets! Your gray ones would look great with red or bright blue as well as gray. Izzy has made a bright and versatile trio good for any occasion. Youse guys do good work!

    Beautiful Robin. I love the stones you chose for the gray bracelet and your wiring is fantastic. This will look beautiful with any other color. So classy. Great use of the tiles also. I love the ab crystal drops. I agree with GZ the bottom one will be perfect for Christmas.

    What a great time spent together! I bet both of you had a lot of fun making these. I really like the creative way you wired the 3 strands together to form one bracelet on the grey one–love the beads you picked out. And the drops added to the backs of the tile ones help finish off the ends nicely. I know you treasure the time spent together creating memories & joy–they are something that can never be taken away from us. Keep having fun!

    What fun! Wrapping wire around memory wire is a new technique to me. It’s got me thinking. All the grey work is lovely and so versatile. They are all such a creative use of beads and memory wire. It’s so special you and Izzy have such a great connection.
