How To Make Crystal Beaded Bangle Bracelets
Materials & Tools To Make One Bracelet
45 Swarovski crystal bicones, 4mm
Memory wire*, gold, Large Bracelet size
Steps To Make One Bracelet
1. Measure out a piece of memory wire that is a complete bracelet, then add half an inch. Cut with wire cutters.
2. Bend a small loop in one end using the round-nose pliers. This takes a little elbow grease because memory wire is very hard. Grasp the end of the wire with the round-nose pliers and rotate your wrist to twist a loop into the end of the wire.
3. Slide the crystal bicone beads onto the other end of the memory wire loop.
4. When you have a complete bracelet of crystal bicone beads, bend a small loop in the other end using the round-nose pliers.
*A Note About Memory Wire:
Memory wire is wire that is permanently shaped in a coil. It is usually found in bracelet size and necklace size. The coil you see in the package is the size of the bracelet or necklace you can make. For this bracelet, we used a package of memory wire labeled “large bracelet.” This is the perfect wire to use to make memory wire bracelets.
