Welcome to Mangelsen's... Everything That Inspires!

Memory Wire Skull Bracelet

SUPPLIES:

-Memory Wire Shears
-Round Nose Pliers
-Bead Tray or Mat to hold the beads while stringing
-3 Large Skull Beads
-1 Tube - 6/0 Royal Tangerine Beads
-1 Tube - 6/0 Opaque Black Beads
-1 pkg - Memory Wire (oval or round)

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Start the bracelet by curling the end of the memory wire so that the tip of the wire is touching itself with the Round Nose Pliers; the memory wire is stiff so it might take a little muscle to get it to curl.
  2. String 25 orange/black beads. Add 1 large skull and 74 orange/black beads.
  3. Add second large skull and 74 orange/black beads and third large skull. Add 25 orange/black beads to complete the bracelet.
  4. Finish the bracelet by using Round Nose pliers to curl the end of the wire toward itself.

Optional:

- Memory Wire End Caps
- Bead Fix-It Adhesive, E-6000, or Hypo Cement

For a more polished look, you can glue end caps on the end of the wire instead of using the Round Nose Pliers method. End caps look like beads but they have a single hole in them.
