Mumbai Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Memory wire makes a splash in this Mumbai bracelet. It effortlessly allows you to combine beads and braided cork cord from Regaliz for a bangle that's sure to stand out. Dangling tassels complete the eclectic look. You can see more inspiration for creating memory wire jewelry in this Artbeads Cafe episode.

Step one:
Cut a single loop from The Beadsmith 2.25-inch black oxide steel memory wire round bracelet. Use memory wire finishing pliers to create a loop at one end of the bracelet. For help with this technique, please see this tutorial video.

Step two:
Add a TierraCast brass oxide pewter 3mm faceted heishi spacer, followed by a Czech glass black with dark teal finish faceted round bead, a Czech glass turquoise and cobalt transparent mix with bronze finish 9mm faceted round bead, a TierraCast spacer, and a 9mm round bead. Then, add a JBB 6mm antique brass hammered end cap, with the opening facing away from the beads.

Step three:
Use a length of Regaliz black hollow braided cork cord approximately five inches long and slide it onto the memory wire so that the end goes into your end cap. Finish the other end of the cord with an end cap.

Step four:
Make a mirror image of the bead pattern on this end of the bracelet, then finish the memory wire with a coiled loop.

Step five:
Attach a small turquoise tassel with gold cap to each loop using a gold-filled 14K 6.1mm open jump ring. For help with opening and closing jump rings, please see this video tutorial.
