Brite Rainbow Bracelet

PROJECT B8042
Designer: Alexandra Smith
Skill Level: Beginner
Embrace your inner child or happy-go-lucky sprite with this whimsical memory wire bracelet. Oval memory wire is strung with an opaque rainbow mix of Miyuki 10/0 delica seed beads, shimmering mushroom beads, Minos par Puca beads, and a vibrant rainbow charm.
Instructions
Please note, you will only want to cut memory wire with memory wire cutters. It is a very tough metal and can damage scissors or regular cutters. You may find it helpful to watch the video posted above: Plan Your Memory Wire Bracelet on Beading Wire.
  1. Begin by cutting your oval memory wire with memory wire cutters so that you have 4 complete loops. Onto one end, create a simple wire loop.
  2. If you are new to memory wire, you can watch the video: How to Make a Memory Wire Bracelet with Pastella Beads. This video will show you a lot of the basics including cutting the wire, making the loop, stringing the beads, and finishing the bracelet.
  3. Slide on your 10/0 seed beads as follows: red, orange, yellow, green, turquoise, blue.
  4. Slide on one Minos par Puca bead.
  5. Repeat step three to add another rainbow section of seed beads.
  6. Slide on one mushroom bead.
  7. Repeat steps 3 through 6 twenty nine more times to fill 4 loops of memory wire, leaving about 1/4 inch of memory. Grip this wire with your round nose pliers and create another simple wire loop.
  8. To add your rainbow charm, use pliers to open the 4mm jump ring that came with your charm (any similarly sized open jump ring will work). Slide on the loop of your charm. Also slide on the end loop on one side of your memory wire bracelet. Close the jump ring.
  9. Enjoy your bracelet!
