“Bangle-icious” Bracelet Beading Tutorial #14252
Stacked bracelets are so much fun to wear and wow, do they make a statement! While our “Bangle-icious” stacked bracelets look like one continuous memory wire bracelet when worn, they are actually individual memory wire bangles worn together. Make these fun “Bangle-icious” stacked bracelets in your favorite colors and then mix and match them to go with whatever you wear for an instant pop of color and sparkle!
In this simple beading pattern, complete with materials page and 25 high-resolution full-color photos and easy to follow step-by-step directions, we’ll show you how to use a coiled roll of memory wire to make an armful of individual memory wire bangles featuring different shapes and sizes of beads to achieve terrific texture and visual interest. Whether you wear just one, a few, or a whole arm full, you’ll love your “Bangle-icious” stacked bracelets! Bead Happy!
Tutorial by: Cara Landry
– Bracelet memory wire 2.25” (57mm)
– Memory wire cutter or heavy duty wire cutters – Make sure you do not use your regular jewelry cutters – the memory wire can damage them.
– Round nose pliers
– Chain nose (smooth flat) pliers
For this project, you can use whatever types and sizes of beads you’d like! We personally made each of our bangles with one type of bead – for example, one bangle was made with just 6mm dark teal fire polished beads. Feel free to use a mixture of beads for your bangles. Below are the types of beads we used to make our bangle bracelets.
– 6mm beads – I used round glass fire-polished beads
– 4mm beads – I used round glass fire-polished beads
– 3mm beads – I used round glass fire-polished beads
– 8/0 seed beads
– 11/0 seed beads
– 15/0 seed beads

Feedback About Simple Bead Patterns:
"Honestly, I am remedial when it comes to bead weaving but, HANDS DOWN!, this tutorial provided the most clear, easy to read and follow instructions I have ever seen. It makes other bead weaving tutorials that also have a good rep for being "easy to read and follow" pale by comparison. I made my earrings without any coaching whatsoever and I can't wait to do the matching bracelet." - Pam
