Lilac Harmony Memory Wire Bracelet

PROJECT B816
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
This bracelet has a boutique-inspired look with its pops of gold and lilac. Wood beads, aged seed beads, and Tierracast spacer beads spiral around memory wire in this easy to make bracelet design. The finishing touch is a Nunn Design bezel and Swarovski Crystal chaton in lilac.
Instructions
Note: You must use memory wire cutters to cut memory wire. Do not attempt to use normal jewelry making cutters.
  1. Begin this bracelet by cutting your memory wire so it is a little more then one and a half loops around. Create a simple wire loop on one end. This loop will stop your beads from falling off once you string them on the wire.
  2. String on the memory wire: 1 3mm spacer bead, 3 seed beads, 1 6mm nugget spacer bead, 3 wood beads, 1 6mm nugget spacer bead, 3 seed beads, 1 3mm spacer bead, and 1 wood bead.
  3. Repeat the previous sequence 5 more times. Dependent upon how long your memory wire is you might need to leave off a few beads during the last sequence or even add a bead or two to complete the bracelet. You will want to make sure that you leave approximately 1/4 inch at the end of exposed wire so that you can create another loop in the next step.
  4. Create a simple wire loop on the end of your bracelet using your round nose pliers.
  5. Open a jump ring and and connect the bezel to one of the simple wire loops on your bracelet.
  6. Place a small dab of E6000 glue into your bezel setting and then set your crystal down into it. Let dry.
  7. Enjoy!
Design Tip: Let your glue dry for a full 24 hours before wearing.
