I have been admiring the memory wire bracelets on Happy Hour Projects for a while now. You can do so much with them, and they look easy enough that even I can make them. Which is saying something because, beaded jewelry isn't my strong suite.
When Whole Port sent me some beads last month, and I knew right a way what I was going to make with them. I used two different type of beads (some Cat's Eye and some Lamp Work Faced Beads), and some memory wire I picked up at Michaels. I really like how using different beads adds texture and a lot of color.
I'm not going to post a full photo tutorial here because Adrianne does such a great job of explaining how to make one in her tutorial.
I will say they are pretty easy and if you have thought of making one you should they are a lot of fun. It's fun to watch all the beads wind their way down the wire. It reminded me of the kids toys with the wooden beads on the metal loops.
I also added 5 little silver birds.
I'm sure you can figure out what the birds are for. Yep, my baby birds.
I love the way it turned out. And... I expanded my crafty know-how. Which is always A LOT of fun.
Have you done anything lately to expand your crafty know-how?
