I've introduced the use of hollow colored rubber tubing before - see my past tutorial post, How to Make Fun Cover Up Hoop Earrings using small diameter memory wire. The same approach can be made with memory wire bracelets.

Dora over at the ShowTellShare blog has a wonderful tutorial on how to add color to memory wire bracelets without beads by simply feeding the wire through sections of rubber tubing.  If you've never been fond of the typical memory wire designs - you know, the multi-coiled affairs - this might change your mind!

You could also cut up the rubber tubing into smaller sections and group beads all the way around.  Kelly of Off the Beaded Path does just this in her memory wire bracelet video tutorial.  She also uses round screw crimp beads for the ends of the bracelet. These are much better looking terminals than the glue on balls or wire loops.
