Introduction: Bracelet DIY
Really cool, metal wire bracelets. So easy to make, once you know how!
Step 1: What You Need:
You will need:
- Wire cutters
- Wire benders (preferably the jewelry ones)
- Memory wire (for bracelets)
- Assortment of beads
Step 2: Cut Your Wire
Your bracelet can have as many coils on as you want - the more coils, the more beads. Most people prefer to have one coil so you need to cut your wire about one and a half loops.
Step 3: Bending One End
To start with you will need to bend one end of your wire. You do this by getting your wire benders, clip/press them onto the the very end and twist away from you (the little loop should be on the outside).
Step 4: Put All of Your Beads On
All you need to do for this step is to put some beads on. Make sure that you leave about 1 cm of wire left at the end.
Step 5: Bend the Other End
With your wire benders you need to bend the end of the wire the same way you did at the start. Again, the little loop should face outwards.
Step 6: You Are Finished!
Wear your bracelet! Have fun and make as many as you want!
