Earthtones Memory Wire Set

By:

Create a bracelet and necklace from Katie Hacker using memory wire and ceramic beads.

 

Earthtones Memory Wire Set

Materials:

  • Necklace memory wire
  • Bracelet memory wire
  • 20mm polished agate bead
  • 10 - 9mm cylindrical ceramic beads
  • 41 - Gemstone chips
  • 22 - 5mm sterling silver dotted spacers
  • 2 - 6mm coiled silver spacers
  • 4 - Silver 3mm memory wire end caps
  • 1.7mm black rubber tubing
  • Memory wire shears
  • Nipper tool
  • BeadFix™ glue
  • Adhesive tape
  • Ruler

Steps:

Necklace:

  1. Use memory wire shears to cut 1 ½ loops of necklace wire. (Do not use ordinary wire cutter, the hard wire will damage the blades.) Place a piece of adhesive tape over one end of the necklace to prevent the beads from slipping off the end as you string them.
     
  2. String the agate onto the center of the necklace. String the following beads on each side of the agate: dotted spacer, gemstone chip, coiled spacer, cylindrical bead, two dotted spacers.
     
  3. Center the beads on the necklace, then measure the uncovered wire. Cut a piece of rubber tubing for each side of the necklace that is 1/4-3/8" shorter than the uncovered wire. Slide the tubing and a gemstone chip onto the wire. Glue a memory wire end cap onto each end of the wire, then spot-glue the end cap to the gemstone chip.

Bracelet:

  1. Use memory wire shears to cut 2 1/2 continuous loops of bracelet wire. Place a piece of adhesive tape over one end of the bracelet to prevent the beads from slipping off the end as you string them. String beads as follows onto the bracelet: dotted spacer, cylindrical bead, dotted spacer, five gemstone chips. Repeat this pattern seven times, then string a dotted spacer, a cylindrical bead and a silver spacer.
     
  2. Center the beads on the bracelet, then measure the uncovered wire. Cut a piece of rubber tubing for each side of the bracelet that is 1/4-3/8" shorter than the uncovered wire. Slide the tubing and a gemstone chip onto the wire. Glue a memory wire end cap onto each end of the wire, then spot-glue the end cap to the gemstone chip.
