Tubular Square Stitch and Memory Wire Bracelet Tutorial

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?

  1. Very interesting designs in this bracelet.

    Watching the video I wondered if the weight of the beads would pull down on the wire and create a large gap when it was on your wrist. Depending on the weight of the wire - but then a heavy wire would be stiff and maybe uncomfortable to wear? Hmmm...a bit of a challenge ....

    1. That is why she used memory wire - very strong yet not thick.


You're AWESOME! Thanks for the comment and feedback. You do make a difference on my blog!
