Instructions:
Step one:
Cut three lengths of memory wire approximately 2 1/2 inches larger than the size you need to fit around your wrist.

Step two:
Make a simple loop at the end of your first wire. Take a look at our How to Finish Memory Wire Handy Tip for more help. String the following pattern onto the wire:
  • One TierraCast antique silver 5mm beaded heishi spacer
  • One Dakota Stones blue apatite 10x20mm double-drilled bead
  • One spacer
  • One Dakota Stones blue goldstone 4mm round bead
  • One Dakota Stones pyrite 6mm faceted roundel bead
  • One blue goldstone bead
Repeat this pattern eight more times. Make another simple loop at the end of your wire.

Step three:
Make a simple loop at the end of your second wire. String the following pattern onto this wire. The blue apatite beads will be the same beads from the previous step, just the open stringing holes:
  • One spacer
  • One blue apatite rectangle bead
  • One spacer
  • One Dakota Stones dumortierite 10x20mm double-drilled bead
Repeat this pattern eight more times. Make another simple loop at the end of your wire.

Step four:
Make a simple loop at the end of your third wire. String the following pattern onto the wire, using the open stringing holes of the dumortierite beads from the previous step:
  • One spacer
  • One Dakota Stones blue apatite 4mm round bead
  • One pyrite roundel
  • One blue apatite round
  • One spacer
  • One dumortierite rectangle bead
Repeat this pattern eight more times. Make a small loop at the end of the wire.

Step five:
String a pyrite roundel onto a 925/10 silver-filled 2-inch 22 gauge head pin, followed by a spacer. Repeat this two times for a total of three dangles. Line up the simples loops on the end of each wire and secure them together with your dangles by creating a wrapped loop. For help making wrapped loops, please see our Wrapped Loop Handy Tip.
