Pretty in Pink!

This pink bracelet is made using memory wire, so it shapes to your wrist whatever your size! Personally I HATE pink, but for those who do like it, I’m sure the colours here will be just perfect!!

Anyway, have a look and see what you think. Hope you like them!

Miyuki Peach Memory Wire Bracelet with Swarovski Crystals (Designed by Emily Kersh)

Tools Needed: Round-Nose Pliers & Wire Cutters

Materials Needed 10g x 6/0 Dark Peach Lined Crystal AB Miyuki Seed Beads, 13 x 6mm Crystal Neon Pink Swarovski Pearl Beads, 10 x 6mm Astral Pink Xilion Bicone Swarovski Crystal, 20 x 4mm Astral Pink Xilion Bicone Swarovski Crystal, 4 x 6mm Apollo Gold Czech Faceted Round Glass Bead, 28 x 4mm Opaque Coral Pink Czech Faceted Round Glass Bead, 1 Silver Plated Memory Wire Bracelet.

Method:

  1. Cut the memory wire so you have about 5 coils (you will only fill about 4.5 coils with beads, but it’s good to have some extra left to work with).
  2. Turn a loop on one end of the wire using the pliers to secure your work.
  3. Time to start beading! Thread on a 4mm Bicone, then 10-12 seed beads, letting them spiral down the wire to the bottom. When you continue beading, each section of seed beads should be of 10-12, though you can make it more or less depending on where you want each section of the other beads to sit.
  4. Continue beading following this pattern:
  • 4mm Czech
  • 4mm Bicone
  • 4mm Czech
  • 6mm Bicone
  • Swarovski Pearl
  • 6mm Bicone
  • 4mm Czech
  • 4mm Bicone
  • 4mm Czech
  • Seed Beads
  • 4mm Czech
  • 4mm Bicone
  • Swarovski Pearl
  • 6mm Czech
  • Swarovski Pearl
  • 4mm Bicone
  • 4mm Czech
  • Seed Beads

5.  When you have reached the end, you will need to cut the wire about 1cm from the end of the beading and use the

pliers to turn a loop again to secure.

And your bracelet is complete!!

As usual, pictures to illustrate.
