Winter Inspired Bracelet




Hi Everyone,

I recently shared this bracelet at Finding My Way in Texas....

 I have only recently decided that I like memory wire, and I have created a number of bracelets already, but none for myself.

I decided on a themed bracelet and since Winter is upon us here in New Zealand, why not make a Winter inspired bracelet?

 What you will need:
Memory wire
beads - mine are white, clear and turquoise
headpins, jump rings and spacers

Cut the memory wire to the length of your choice. Using pliers bend one end of the wire to form a loop - this is where I added a turquoise bead on a headpin.


 Thread the beads onto the wire and end off with a loop again....

 
I had to re-thread my bracelet a few times to get the look I liked and I think the end result is really pretty. 



I took this picture a couple of weeks ago on a cold Sunday afternoon, looking out to the Harbour Bridge....



 My bracelet reminds me of our Winter sky....




And you have to pop over to The SweetTalk Shop and see the absolutely beautiful bracelets that Lisa has made. She says that this tutorial inspired her memory wire bracelet - but I think I may actually be inspired by her creation.


Take care
