Go to www.beadaholique.com to purchase beading supplies and to get design ideas! Hi this is Julie for beadaholique.com I’m going to show you how to make a
memory wire noodle bead bracelet and this is
actually an exclusive kit from beadaholique.com It comes in
several colorways I’ve got this gold and purple one here, a
silver and crystal clear bead one here and then I have also have a black and gunmetal one that I’m wearing and I’ll show you actually how to make this one here. And memory wire bracelets are great because they retain their shape which is really fun and so you get this look of like a stacked bracelet design but it’s very easy to do and quick to put together. I want to show you how to do it when you order the kit you’re going to get all
the ingredients you see right here and that includes noodle beads, some small
faceted beads and some large faceted beads and some
memory wire in terms of the tools they are going to need are a pair round nose pliers and some tape. You’re not gonna cut the
memory wire I do want to caution against that. Memory wire is very strong if you try to cut it with
your regular cutters you’re going to damage them you need a special memory wire cutter. So
we have pre cut it for you so you don’t have to worry about that. Let me show you how to do this.
You’ll be surprised at how quick and easy it is Start with a little bit a tape. We’re going to find one of the ends and onto that end place the tape over the last quarter inch or so fold the tape over so it acts as a bead stopper for us and
at the end we’re gonna wanna make a loop at the very end. Take your memory wire. If it’s tangled at all just undo it uncoiling it gently and we’re gonna start by placing one of
the small beads onto the wire followed by a large bead and another small bead. I’m gonna follow
those three beads by a noodle bead and now we’re going to repeat that same process small bead, a large bead, another small bead again followed by a noodle bead. What you’re
gonna wanna do scoot these down as you go. It doesn’t have to be every two that you scoot down but you know every 2, 3, 4 just scoot them down to the end and then they will stop on their own actually
when they hit the tape so I’m just going to continue. I left off with the noodle now I need a small bead, a large bead another small bead, follow by a noodle bead and I’m just going to keep doing that
until I filled my entire round of memory wire all the way up to the end quarter inch again I’m almost to the end of my wire here. I’m going to add another noodle bead and now when I get to here I’m just gonna see how much space I really have because I want to end up with about an
quarter of an inch. So normally in my sequins I would add another small,
another large and another small that’s not all gonna fit on here. I’ll see what will so if I add a small that’s not gonna give me enough room let me see, a large is gonna be just about right actually so I’m just
gonna call it good with the large bead right there and not worry. It’s still going
to be really pretty or I could see what two small beads like and actually two small beads look really nice too. So
you’re gonna get extra beads in your kit. So you’re gonna
have enough to play with but basically when you get to the
end you just see what works and if you wanted to you could even go back to this end here you have taped it and you just pull that
tape off, scoot a bead off, like say you’re trying to fit another
noodle bead or something like that that gives you some flexibility but I’m going to end it like this and to end it. I’m just going to go ahead
and take my round nose pliers, grab the tip, rotate, this stuff is pretty stiff, it’s pretty darn strong it does hold its shape and then keep rotating until I’ve made a loop and that’s all you have to do to end it and now my beads won’t fall off. Go back to the other side just pull off that tape and do the same thing grabbing the tip and I’m rotating and I’m going to grab it from another angle, keep rotating and there we have a nice loop and there you see what our finished bracelet looks like. These are really fun to do. They’re
