Add beads

Starting with the largest beads, start sliding beads onto the wire. Keep adding the same size beads until they make a full circle.

Next, start sliding the smallest beads onto the wire until you’ve made a full circle with those beads.

Finally, add the medium-size beads until they make a full circle, and you have about an inch of wire left at the end.

Curl the end of the wire inward with a round nose plier, to prevent the beads from slipping off. 

Add the finishing touch

This step is totally optional. It just adds a little flair to this already adorable bracelet. To finish it off, place one bead on a headpin, cut the pin so there’s about ½ an inch of exposed wire, and curl the wire inwards to make a loop. Before closing the loop fully, attach the headpin with the bead on it to the loop on the end of the bracelet. Then close it completely. You can do this for one or both ends of the bracelet. 

And that, my friends, is how to make a memory wire bracelet that looks like multiple strands of beads. 

If this tutorial has inspired you to create your own beaded memory wire bracelet or any other project based on this technique, I would love to see your creations! headpins
