Memory wire bracelets to complete your look!
If you’re fond of wearing accessories especially bangles or bracelets, you don’t have to break the bank! It is actually easy to make one for yourself. Proof of that is the bead wire bracelet tutorial that I shared here before.
But I’ve got another easy-to-make bracelet that even young kids can manage to do. My five year old daughter made one on her own with very little supervision! It kept her occupied for a long time. Her work is the colorful teddy bear + alphabet bead combo you see in the top photo. The other one was made by me using amethyst stones. If she did it, you can do it too! No doubt about it!
You will only need three things to make a funky, colorful, classy or any kind of bracelet you want. Let’s get started!
What you’ll need:
any kind of beads
pre-cut memory wire ( I had three loops. The more loops you use, the thicker your bracelet will be and the longer the time it will take to make it.)
I guess by looking at the picture below, you can already figure out how it’s done.
A very simple equation!
What to do:
But anyway, here it goes in case you prefer words than picture:
1. Create a loop towards the inside at one end of the memory wire using the pliers.
2. String the beads until you reach the other end of the memory wire. Make a loop again to secure the bracelet.
The end. (:
That was quick and easy, right? If you string pearls, you would end up with a classy bracelet. All it takes is a little creativity and patience. And you bet, it is an awesome craft activity to do with girl friends or kids! It is also a great gift to make and give to friends; it is handmade which makes it an extra special piece.
So, go ahead, grab some beads from the craft store and make your own memory wire bracelet!
Before I go, let me show you the little girl modeling her bracelet.
Proudly wearing it!
The school where my daughter goes to had an auction to raise funds for the school. They required the kids to bring handmade stuff to be auctioned off, made together by parents and the children. We chose this activity and the whole family had a blast making it! (:
