Whitney Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Bring some texture and dimension to your seed bead designs with Czech glass Minos Par Puca Beads and TOHO Demi Rounds. They really make the look pop in this memory wire creation. Switch up the colors to suit your style. You can see more inspiration for using memory wire in your jewelry designs in this Artbeads Cafe episode.

Step one:
Cut a length of The Beadsmith 2.25-inch black oxide steel memory wire round bracelet approximately 6 coils long.

Step two:
Create a loop on one end of the bracelet using the Beadalon memory wire finishing pliers. For help with this technique, please see this tutorial video.

Step three:
Add five TOHO 11/0 Demi Round Beads in gold-lustered dark chocolate bronze to the wire, followed by a Czech glass 2.5x3mm Argentees Minos par Puca Bead, a Demi Round, a Par Puca bead, a Demi Round, and a Par Puca Bead. Repeat this pattern to complete your bracelet.

Step four:
Create a loop on the end of the bracelet.
