To see the full tutorial to show you how to make great bracelets for very little expense visit my blog at Christine's Crafts. It includes a video tutorial too!
Make one to match every outfit and wow all your friends.
Decide on your design and lay it out on your workspace so that you can repeat it easily.
Cut a piece of the memory wire with as many turns as you would like. My pink bracelet here has approximately 4 turns.
Use the round nosed pliers to bend one end of the wire into a circular shape. This will prevent the beads from falling off the wire. Once you have bent the wire use pliers to squeeze the wire circle closed.
Start feeding the beads onto the end of the wire that has not been bent.
Continue until you have completed your pattern.
Check that you are happy with it and then repeat until you have filled your wire or decided you have enough.
Using the round nose pliers form a circle on the final end of the wire. This will prevent the beads from escaping off either end of the bracelet.
You can make many bracelets and use different beads and different lengths of wire to give different effects. Get creative and match your outfits perfectly!

Congratulations on making your bracelet and I hope you enjoy making many more and wearing them wherever you go.
