A. Janice and Kate’s 12-Coil* design is a random pattern of bugles, 11/0 copper beads, and Little Shadows. The ends were finished by gluing beads on the ends using Zap Glue. You can also choose to end your bracelets using dangles made on head pins which add a finishing touch.
B. Using CzechMates Tiles and 4mm Fire Polish, two coils have been strung with beads side-by-side to make wider bangles that can be popped into the 12 coil design for added embellishment. If you want to curl your ends, do so carefully so you don’t crack the fragile glass due to too much pressure from your round nose pliers or not enough space on the memory wire itself.
C. Go random and have fun mixing and matching your beads on single coils. Keep the coils and loops very close in length and size so you can feed them onto head pins, if you like (as pictured) to make a cuff. Add wire-wrapped dangles for that touch of pizazz.
* Kate and Janice used the 2.25 (or 2-1/4) size Memory Wire, which will fit an average size adult-woman’s wrist. For a wrist smaller than 6 inches, select the 2 inch coil.
