Penny Candy Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Artbeads

Bright candy colors make this bracelet stand out! The O beads add a silver pop for even more style. This idea makes a great project for kids and is an excellent last minute gift idea. Switch out the colors to suit your taste!

Step one:
Add an earwire clutch to the end of your memory wire bracelet to act as a bead stopper. This way, you can add beads and they won't fall off the end of your wire. Add the following bead pattern to the wire:
  • Three Miyuki 8/0 Luminous round seed beads in plum crazy
  • Three Miyuki 8/0 Luminous round seed beads in hot magenta
  • Three Miyuki 8/0 Luminous round seed beads in hot pink
  • Three Miyuki 8/0 Luminous round seed beads in crystal pink
  • Three Miyuki 8/0 Luminous round seed beads in bright salmon
  • Three Miyuki 8/0 Luminous round seed beads in creamsicle
  • Three Miyuki 8/0 Luminous round seed beads in pineapple
  • Three Miyuki 8/0 Luminous round seed beads in chartreuse
  • Three Miyuki 8/0 Luminous round seed beads in bright lime
Now add a 3.8x1mm Czech glass crystal full labradorite O bead to the wire.

Step two:
Make a mirror image of the Miyuki bead pattern on the other side of the O bead. Add another O bead to the wire and make a mirror image of this Miyuki bead pattern. Continue this process until you reach the end of your wire.

Step three:
Add a remembrance memory wire 3mm silver-plated end to each end of your memory wire. Take a look at our How to Finish Memory Wire Handy Tip for help with using the ends.
