Tortoise Shell Memory Wire Bracelet

PROJECT B2081
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Beginner
Tortoise Shell is a classic pattern and looks so warm when paired with tiny gold beads. The perfect accessory for a classy preppy look.
Instructions
  1. At one end of the memory wire, make a simple wire loop using your round nose pliers.
  2. String on in this order: 1 gold bead, 3 tortoise beads. You will repeat this pattern 32 times, and finish with one additional gold bead.
  3. Using your memory wire cutters, trim the end of the wire. Leave enough room to make a simple wire loop at this end, same as you did on the other end of the wire.
  4. All done!
