- Memory wire (coiled wire that holds its shape)
- Selection of beads
- Wire cutter
- Needle-nosed pliers
Then, cut a section of wire that will fit the beads you've selected (one coil per bead type) and make a loop at one end with the pliers. Slide the beads on, making a full circle of each type, so that when you finish it will look like several separate bracelets.
Once all the beads are on, cut off any excess wire and then make a loop at the end.
There's obviously a huge range of bracelets you can make with this, depending on the beads. My first one was more bold and my second a bit more subdued.
My mom made a really fun one with more variety of colors.
These could be a great Christmas gift - especially if you catch beads half off at Michael's or Hobby Lobby like we did. We estimated $12-$15 per bracelet we made. I love them both so much that they will be hard to part with, but one is going to go to someone on my Christmas list....
