Memory Wire Bracelets


I've been enjoying making these pretty bracelets the past couple of days.  It was my first time to work with memory wire, and I have to say, it was a pleasure!


Memory wire is a stiff, already coiled, wire that can be used for making necklaces, bracelets, rings, and various other projects depending on the size of the coil.  It makes creating jewelry items a breeze.  


All you have to do is add a loop to one end, string your beads, and add a loop to the other end.


I don't currently own a set of rounded jewelry pliers, so I borrowed my husband's needle-nosed pliers.  They worked, even if they did smell like a tackle box.  I think I might take some of my birthday money and buy myself a set of jewelry pliers.


I really am quite happy with these bracelets, I think that they look very nice and were quite easy and enjoyable to make.  

I really have been in a "bracelet mood" recently, haven't I?  These, the candy cane inspired bracelet, and my crocheted wrap bracelets (which you can purchase on Etsy!) are all fairly recent creations.  

I'm curious, which of these is your favorite?



I love to share my projects at various link parties.

  1. Very nice bracelets. It is hard for me to choose between the orange/white bracelet or the green bracelet.

  2. I like both the green/white and green/silver combinations! They're all very sophisticated-looking and hopefully they'll do well at your craft show!

  7. When my girls were little, I liked to have a pretty little Designer Bracelets on their wrists. I used lobster clasps on the early bracelets, but In my safety conscious mind I worried about the clasp coming apart and the girls choking on the beads or the clasp coming open and the girls choking on the whole bracelet.
