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

Wire Skull Bracelet

SUPPLIES:

-Memory Wire Shears
-Round Nose Pliers
-Bead Tray or Mat to hold the beads while stringing
-15 Medium Skull Beads
-1 Tube - 10/0 Transparent Orange Seed 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 15 small beads, 1 med skull bead, 10 small beads, 1 med skull bead, and repeat the 10 small beads/1 med skull until the bracelet is the desired length.
  3. Complete the beading portion of the bracelet by adding 15 small beads. 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

Memory Wire End Caps: 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.
