Amazonite Memory Wire Bracelet

Amazonite Memory Wire Bracelet

Memory wire is a fantastic threading material that allows you to create beautiful jewellery designs easily. For this project, we have used our beautiful amazonite beads and combined them with silver plated beads to create a stunning 'stacking' bracelet.

Memory wire is a hard, rigid, pre-coiled wire which holds its shape - unlike regular metal jewellery wire, memory wire cannot be manipulated to change its shape.

*Please note we have now sold out of the beads in the photo but we have replaced them with another strand of beautiful amazonite beads in the shopping list. Or why not browse our range and choose your favourite beads to complete the look!

STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS

1. Use heavy duty side cutters to cut at least three coils of memory wire.

2. Apply glue to the inside of the end bead and secure onto the end of the memory wire.

3. Thread your chosen beads onto the memory wire, leaving some room on the end of the wire to allow the beads to move around slightly.

4. Glue another end bead onto the end of your wire.

Your bracelet is now complete

Instead of using end beads you can use round nose pliers to form a loop at each end of the memory wire to secure in place. This can be great for adding charms and wire wrapped beads (briolette beads would look lovely!) to add extra interest to your design.

Top tip: Use a bead board or bead mat to plan the order of your beads for your bracelet - this will make it easier to thread your beads and avoid making mistakes.

The suggested products used in this project are suggestions to inspire you. Products used were compatible at the time of making but do be aware that gemstones are natural and hand cut stocks can vary, so do use your own common sense as to the compatibility of each item when making.This make can also be used after Mother's Day and be re-worked for you and your friends as these rings would make great birthday presents too!
