With Mother’s Day coming soon I thought I would do a tutorial on a memory wire bracelet. The supplies needed are:

  • Wire Cutters
  • Pliers
  • Memory Wire for Bracelets
  • Glue (E6000 is what I used)
  • Assorted Small Beads and
    Charms

Cut the memory wire to the size (how many wraps around your wrist you want). Glue on a small bead to one end of the wire. Let it dry and then take your pliers and bend the end up. Before closing the bent end up, thread on a charm (I added a small key) and then finish closing the bead wire end.

Using the other end of the wire, start putting on the beads in any order you choose. I like a random look with this particular bracelet. When you get the length of the wire strung with your beads, leave a small length and add another charm (I added a heart). Glue a small bead on the end of wire and let dry. Bend up this end of the wire making sure the charm is in the bent area.

Memory wire bracelets are a great look and easy for someone who has trouble with fastening bracelets. These bracelets are a great gift for any occasion. You can make them to go with any outfit and have fun designing a look you will love. This bracelet is inspired by a pair of boots on my Pinterest Boards. Love turquoise, silver, and brown together. Happy Crafting!
