Let's Get Crafting!

March is National Craft
Month. In the spirit of
crafting, I thought I
would show you some
bracelets that I have made.
The red one and the pearl
one were made last summer
and the purple one was made
to go with my outfit that I wore
to my high school reunion last
year.
You will need Memory Wire,
needle nose pliers, beads and
charms (optional).
The wire coils and uncoils-
hence the name Memory
Wire but I used "markers"
to help keep the wire from
coiling into inself, they
helped keep the wire
seperated while putting the
beads on.
I decided how many coils I
wanted for each bracelet
and snipped the wire. You will
see that the red one has more
coils than the purple one. The
pearl one is in between both of
them.
Begin by making a small loop at
one end of the wire-you can add
a charm here if you want. The
loop keeps the beads on the wire.
Then begin putting your beads on.
You can make a pattern or just
put them on randomly. When
you get to the end make another
loop, add a charm and you are
finished.
***Make sure that your loops are
fully closed so that your charms
and beads DON'T fall off.
Enjoy! These bracelets are great
for those of us who like to wear
multiple bracelets at one time.
they also make super gifts!!!!
Let me know what you are crafting!
