How to Make Memory Wire Cuffs with Two Hole Beads

By on Sunday, June 07, 2015 11 Comments

Memory wire bracelets are wonderfully easy to put on as the coils are quickly wrapped around the wrist. But there is an easy way to convert them into cuffs if you use twohole beads like Tila beads. Check out Polly's tutorial over on the Rings and Things blog to see how it is done.


She also had other inspirational variations but I particularly like the ones above where the tile two hole beads make the the bracelet look like a solid cuff.

Consider using crystal slider 2 hole beads too!

    1. Sigh. I think there is something wrong with the Rings and Things site re: the images not showing. I have reached out to them and asked them to correct it. So check back another time.

  6. Ooo, I love these. I didn't like what I was making with memory wire so I packed it away. I'm willing to give it another try. Thanks again Pearl

  7. Will check back to see what they do to correct this issue.

    The design is superb btw!! What a great idea!

    I could figure this out myself I'm sure and I have some turquoise tila beads I'd love to use in this manner!

  8. I want to make a memory wire bracelet with multiple strands but I want all the strand to be attached to each other from top to bottom. I saw a bracelet I love on Etsy. It is made mostly with rulla beads but it looks like 6 strands (top to bottom) of wire with three rows of rullas - 2 of the wires go into the rullas bead rows. But there is nowhere where there is a shared wire so that the bracelet strands are held together and for sure, they are tight and together. How is that done? see link

    1. Without a picture, I can't be sure. But like the bracelet above, it must be staggering the 2 hole beads so there aren't 2 wires going a single hole. You will need to fill in some spaces with other small beads as the design above,
