Larissa of The Heart Beading has a marvelous tutorial which combines bead and wire work. What also caught my attention was her use of square stitch in a tubular form - not commonly done. Many beaders use tubular peyote or herringbone. The square stitch though makes it easy to stack the colors for a distinctive look.
I also loved how she combined wire work with short sections of the beaded tubes. She did the double spiral wrap of large beads.
Using memory wire makes for an easy bangle style. But you could also use conventional wire (16G or 18G). Make wrapped loops at each end and add a clasp. Preferably handmade, right?
