Pearl and Crystal Memory Wire Bracelet

Memory wire.  A jewelry-lover’s best friend.  Not too long ago, I discovered how incredibly easy it is to make gorgeous jewelry of all kinds using nothing more than memory wire and whatever beads you like.  So far, I made one to remind me of my “word of the year,” and two with shell beads; one pink and one coral.
Recently, I had a formal event to attend {more on that later} and I wanted an elegant, blingy bracelet to go with my dress.  
Here’s what I came up with, and how you can make your own.
Materials:
- memory wire
- pearls in assorted sizes
- small rhinestone crystals
- wire cutters and needle nose pliers
Step 1: String beads and rhinestones onto your memory wire.
I did mine in a completely random pattern of small pearls, large pearls, and crystals.  I’m a total perfectionist and I tend to always want to do things symmetrically, so it took all my self control not to make a pattern, but I think the effect is more fun this way.
Step 2: Cut wire on both ends and form wire loops to secure. 

That’s really all there is to it.  No fancy tools or skills necessary!
The event I was attending was a ballroom dance showcase where my star students, Kristen and Nate, were performing an East Coast Swing!  So exciting!  And they did a fabulous job!!

Unfortunately, none of the photos actually show me wearing the bracelet, but I really was!  You can imagine how nice it looked, right?

What do you think?  Would you add a bracelet like this to your formal jewelry collection?
Hugs & Glitter,
