Spring Symphony Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

This fun memory wire bracelet is simple to make and looks great! You can learn just how Cynthia created this piece by following the instructions below and watching the Beads, Baubles and Jewels segment it's featured in. Don't forget to watch our Artbeads Cafe episode to see more of this bracelet and behind the scenes of the Beads, Baubles and Jewels episode. Discover other examples of this design in our Spring Symphony Variations.

Step one:
Cut your memory wire so that you have five pieces that are of equal length.

Step two:
Make a simple loop on one end of a memory wire strand. String seed beads from the Artbeads Monet Nouveau Designer Blend onto the memory wire strand in a random pattern. Finish the end of the memory wire by creating a simple loop. Repeat three times, for a total of four seed bead strands.

Step three:
Make a simple loop on one end of a memory wire strand, then string seed beads until you reach the center of the strand. String the TierraCast brass oxide pewter bird in a tree button and continue stringing seed beads. Finish the end of the memory wire by creating a simple loop.

Step four:
Cut two lengths of the 18 gauge silver-plated non-tarnish Artistic Wire for the ends of the bracelet. Make a simple loop on one end of each wire. On one length of wire, slide a seed bead then slide the simple loop of a seed bead memory wire strand. Continue this process until the last memory wire strand is added. Note: the memory wire strand with the button should be used as the center strand. Add a seed bead, and then make a simple loop at the other end of the 18 gauge silver-plated wire. Then, repeat this step to attach seed beads and the memory wire strands to the other 18 gauge silver-plated wire on the other side of the bracelet.

Step five:
Secure the strands of the bracelet together near one end using 26 gauge silver-plated non-tarnish Artistic Wire. Wrap the wire two or three times between two beads on the top strand, bring the wire down behind the next strand, wrap it between two beads and continue this process down all of the strands. Cut the wire and flatten it down with pliers if needed. Repeat this process behind the button and then one more time close to the other end of the bracelet.

Step six:
String a Swarovski pearl from the Swarovski 4mm Crystal Pearl Patina Designer Blend onto a 2-inch 22 gauge sterling silver head pin and make a wrapped loop at the top of the pearl. Instead of trimming the wire, wrap it around the top of the bead. Make 12 of these wrapped loop dangles. Add the TierraCast brass oxide pewter hummingbird to a head pin and make a simple loop at the top of the bird. With a sterling silver 4.60mm open jump ring, attach a set of three pearl dangles onto three of the four loops of the eye pins at the ends of the bracelet. For help opening and closing jump rings, please see our Handy Tip Video. Add three pearl dangles and the bird dangle to the last loop using a sterling silver 6.10mm open jump ring.
