About This Class

Want to make a quick gift? How about a memory wire bracelet? Memory wire is jewelry wire that is permanently shaped in a coil. You wrap it around your arm and don’t need a clasp. So it’s easy to make and easy to wear!

Even if you've never made any jewelry before, you can make a memory wire bracelet. We'll show you how! It's basically just sliding beads onto wire. Easy!

In this memory wire bracelet tutorial, you will learn how to make two different memory wire wrapped bracelets. The first bracelet is a simple three coil design using two kinds of beads: seed beads and crystal bicones.

The second bracelet is made in the same way, but changes beads every coil and is eight coils high. So it looks like eight different stacked bangles. This version also features charms attached to the ends for a little added flair.

In this  two-part lesson, we'll show you all the tools and materials you'll need to make each bracelet. We'll introduce you to memory wire, what it is and how to use it. Plus we'll show you how to use round-nose pliers to bend a loop in each end of the wire.

Making jewelry like this is so fun and so easy! Once you get started, you’ll be hooked like we are! Before you know it, you’ll be making jewelry for friends, and they will love finding out you made it yourself!
