Yosemite Bracelet

PROJECT B677
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
This bracelet features a wonderful array of different gemstones and reminds me of the beautiful diversity of nature which surrounds us. Because the design uses memory wire, it will keep its spiral shape and easy to make.
Instructions
You can make this bracelet wider if you add additional strands of beads. If you choose this option, I suggest not pre-cutting your memory wire before beginning the project.
  1. Cut your memory wire so that you have 6 continual coils (loops).
  2. Finish one end of the cut memory wire with a simple loop. To see how to do this, please watch the video: How to Finish Memory Wire Ends.
  3. String onto your memory wire: 1/2 the strand of 4mm gemstone cube beads, the strand of 8.5mm pale blue amazonite beads - but leave 2 beads unstrung, and the other half of your 4mm gemstone beads. Create a simple loop (as seen in the video) after your last bead and cut off excess memory wire.
  4. Place onto a head pin one 8.5mm pale blue amazonite bead. Create a simple wire loop after the bead and snip off excess wire. Repeat this step with another head pin and bead.
  5. Open the simple wire loops on the dangles above (the same way you would open a jump ring) and connect one to each of the loops on the bracelet. Close the loops back up.
  6. All done!
