Beaded Bracelet Tutorial

blue green beaded bracelet memory wire

Every now and again I get the urge to do some beading. Luckily when I got that urge earlier this week, I had a little kit just calling my name. I bought it a while ago at our local beading store when my Little Miss went to do a kids beading class. (If you missed it, she made a pretty purple bracelet.)

This kit included the beads, a couple of jump rings and the memory wire to make this pretty bracelet.

It was quick and easy. Here’s the step-by-step:

  1. Make a loop at one end of the wire to stop the beads falling off.
  2. Thread all the beads on.
  3. Make another loop to stop them falling off the other end.
  4. Add a jump ring with a dangly charm and a couple of spare beads.

See? Easy!

      PS Does that mean you’re a “reformed lurker”? Or perhaps a “recovering lurker”? Or a “former lurker”? Maybe we can make a new name for those who lurk no more {wink}

        Hmm, you pose an interesting question. I’ll have to go with “former lurker.” Yeah, that one works. lol

    Hi! I loved your tutorial on memory wire. Great job!

    I am just starting to work with memory wire and I have run into a problem already. I use “rose montees” or rhinestones on my jewelry. The do not have a round hole like beads… it is more of a “slit” in the metal that encases the rhinestones… If I string them on round memory wire, they will turn around and face the opposite direction.. lol… I know there is memory wire that is flat instead of round, but I can’t locate it.

    Is this something you have heard of before? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Have a great day!
