Memory Wire Bracelet


Memory bracelet project.

I have found that a great way to work off stress (besides exercising) is making something. That always works for me. So this week I decided to post one my "quick and easy" bracelets that I made from materials I had stashed in a drawer.

Here is the list of supplies that I used:

memory wire (Bead Heaven)
assorted beads (Bead Heaven)
round nose pliers
flat nose pliers

Here are the directions on how to make it:

Take the memory wire. Use a wire cutter to cut it to suit your taste and wrist size. Then using the round nose pliers, form a small loop at one end. Load the beads in a pleasing manner. Then finish by forming a small loop at the other end (with the round nose pliers). There you have it.

Remember to file the ends of the memory wire so it does not snag on your clothing or you.  The same project can be made with recycled beads you have on hand.  Or you can felt an old sweater and make some fun beads out of it....then use the above as an inspiration to create something even more fun.

Below is a picture of the another memory wire bracelet using purple glass beads from Bead Heaven.
