Retired - Lavender Sunrise Memory Wire Bracelet

PROJECT B817
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
Three rows of wonderfully hued purple and green beads are mixed with glints of gold in this memory wire bracelet project. This easy-to-make design blends beads of different sizes and shapes and is capped off by three petite beaded dangles.
Instructions
  1. Begin by cutting your memory wire with memory wire cutters so that you have 3 complete loops. Onto one end, create a simple wire loop.
  2. If you like, you can also 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. For the stringing of the beads, there was no real set pattern other then the largest purple bead being added every inch or so and then making sure to add a gold bead of some form every 2 to 3 beads. Other then that, it was all fairly random. Please look at the photograph for inspiration.
  4. Continue adding beads until you have around 1/4 of an inch left of wire. Grab this wire with your round nose pliers and create a simple wire loop.
  5. To create your first dangle, place a rondelle, a gold bead, a 3mm round bead, and a seed bead onto a head pin. Create a simple wire loop after the last bead and trim off excess wire. For the second dangle just add a rondelle, a gold bead, and a 3mm round bead to a head pin and create a simple wire loop. Finally for the 3rd dangle add a rondelle and a 3mm round bead to a head pin and create a simple wire loop.
  6. Open the simple wire loops on all the dangles (the same way you would open a jump ring) and link them to one of the loops on your bracelet. Make sure to close up the loops once you have attached them.
  7. All done. Enjoy!
