Easy Peasy There is no Way You could get This Memory Wire Bracelet Tutorial Wrong

The best thing about this tutorial is that there is absolutely no way you can make this bracelet the wrong way.
That's how easy it is.

What do you need?
Memory Wire, 
I used 4 loops.

Memory Wire cutters.  ++

A stash of beads


Bits of lace or fabric


round nose pliers

++If you use your jewelry cutters to cut memory wire, you will damage your  cutters.

To make the Fabric Beads

Cut a small length of lace, denim or other fabric.  (1.5 inches or so)

Pinch the fabric together in the most pleasing way.

Tie with the thread or yarn you have chosen.

Trim the yarn or thread.

To make this no fail bracelet.

Using your round nose pliers,  make a look on one edge of the memory wire.   This will stop the beads from going on one way and falling off the other end of the memory wire.

If you like, make a few of the fabric beads to use.
If you don't want to do that, you don't have to make fabric beads.

Begin adding beads to the memory wire from your bead stash.

When you reach the end of the wire, make a loop at the end of the wire that does not have a loop.

Wear your new, easy peasy You can't do this wrong bracelet.  

You're going to love it!

Super cute, Miss Mallory! I did memory wire bracelets this winter with residents at my mom's assisted living facility. This would be another fun one to do with them. Uses up all those leftover bits! Enjoy the day! Erin
