Tryphena Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Memory wire is fun and easy to work with and always makes a statement! The statement is loud and clear in this purple cuff. Cynthia created several memory wire bangles and then connected them all together for an unforgettable display of style. The color palette was easy to achieve with Artbeads Designer Seed Bead Blends and Designer Blends featuring Swarovski Crystal. Learn how to make this bracelet, then pick your favorite colors to make the look all your own!

Step one:
Cut your memory wire so that you have 12 pieces that are of equal length. Separate the beads from the Punchy Purples 8/0 Designer Seed Bead Blend by color.

Step two:
Make a simple loop on one end of a memory wire strand. Learn how to finish memory wire here. String seed beads of the same color onto the memory wire strand. Finish the end of the memory wire by creating a simple loop. Repeat eight times, with the various color groups, for a total of nine seed bead strands. Make sure all of your strands are the same length. This will be important when assembling the bracelet.

Step three:
Make a simple loop on one end of a memory wire strand, then string pearls from the Swarovski 4mm Crystal Pearl Sweet Nothings Designer Blend in a random order onto the memory wire strand. Finish the end of the memory wire by creating a simple loop. Repeat once more for a total of two pearl strands.

Step four:
Make a simple loop on one end of a memory wire strand, then string bicones from the Swarovski 3mm Bicone Lavender Fields Designer Blend onto the memory wire strand. Finish the end of the memory wire by creating a simple loop.

Step five:
Use two lengths of the silver wire from the Cool Metals 20 gauge Designer Wire Blend as the ends of the bracelet. Make a simple loop on one end of each wire.

Step six:
Slide a seed bead from the Punchy Purples Designer Blend onto one Designer Wire strand. Then slide the simple loop of a seed bead memory wire strand onto the Designer Wire strand. Add a seed bead to the Designer Wire strand. Continue this process following this pattern:
  • Seed bead memory wire strand
  • Seed bead
  • Pearl memory wire strand
  • Seed bead
  • Bicone memory wire strand
  • Seed bead
  • Seed bead memory wire strand
  • Seed bead
  • Seed bead memory wire strand

  • Seed bead memory wire strand
  • Seed bead
  • Pearl memory wire strand
  • Seed bead
  • Seed bead memory wire strand
  • Seed bead
  • Seed bead memory wire strand
  • Seed bead
Make a simple loop at the other end of the Designer Wire strand. Then, repeat this step to attach seed beads and the memory wire strands to the other Designer Wire strand.

Step seven:
Secure the strands of the bracelet together using Titanium 26 gauge Artbeads Designer Wire. Loop the wire between two beads on the top strand, bring the wire down to the next strand, loop it between two beads and continue this process down all of the strands. You can do this in several places for extra security.
