Memory Wire Pearl Bracelet Jewellery Making Project
March 04, 20232 min read
A classic issue for certain traditional types of jewellery is that they don’t fit everyone and, in some cases, adjusting an item to fit can be expensive. This issue is completely avoided with memory wire jewellery because it flexes and wraps around the wearer without needing to clasp shut. This is because the memory wire remembers its original intended shape and will spring back into place after being flexed open. This pearl bracelet tutorial is a great beginner project for anyone looking to explore the intermediate level world of memory wire jewellery craft.

We encourage you to experiment with different colour and bead combinations and we hope you enjoy discovering all the different ways memory wire can revolutionise your jewellery making craft hobby.

Use the side cutters to cut the memory wire so that it can wrap around your wrist just under two times.If you intend to do a lot of memory wire work in the future, we recommend special memory wire cutters. This is because memory wire is tougher to cut than normal wire and can damage your side cutters over time.
1cm away from the end of the wire, use the chain nose pliers to bend it to a 90-degree angle and then use the round nose pliers to coil that 1cm of wire back on itself, creating a loop.
Thread on your beads and pearls in any order you choose until you have 1cm of wire remaining.
