Introduction: DIY Wire and Bead Bracelet

About: Hey, I'm Muhaimina! A crazy craft addict! Obsessed with swirls and polka dots... Love green craft and rustic home decors... and Instructables is pretty much my second home!

If you have a HUGE collection of different kinds of beads then this ible is for you. In this instructable I will show you how to make a stylish wire and bead bracelet in 4 easy steps. It's cheap, easy to make and turns out quite pretty.
To make your wire and bead bracelet look pretty and attractive make sure to use different kinds and sizes of colorful beads, and of course the color combination has to be good.

Let's start making!

Step 1: Materials You Need

Materials needed to make this bracelet:


  1. Memory wire or beading thread,
  2. Beads (different kinds and sizes),
  3. Cutting pliers,
  4. Jump rings - 2,
  5. Extra chain,
  6. Closure ( I used lobster claw).

Step 2: Beading

Cut out a long piece of memory wire or beading thread (Mine was 25 cm). It's better to take a long piece of wire so that you can cut off the extra long piece at the end. But it would be hard to add more wire in the middle of crafting the bracelet.
First of all thread 3 or 4 beads into the wire and place them in the center of the wire. Thread the 4th or fifth bead from both sides and pull the wire to bring the beads together.

The wire is now divided into two parts. Insert 2 or 3 beads into both parts and thread any one bead from both sides like we did previously.

Continue to thread the beads into the wire similarly.

Step 3: Measuring and Securing

Use a ruler to measure if the beaded wire has reached the required length for the bracelet.

If so, then insert the remaining wires into the last few beads randomly. This will secure the beading. Cut off extra wire if needed.

Step 4: Attaching Closure

You can attach any kind of closure, but its better to use lobster-claw, spring-ring, S-hook, hook and eye closures for bracelets.
Attach a lobster-claw, spring-ring or hook on one side and attach a small piece of chain at the other end of the bracelet.


Done! I think it's one of the easiest bracelet making tutorial and looks pretty!
I hope you enjoy making one!
