EASY Beaded Memory Wire Cuff Bracelet Tutorial | Right Angle Weave

watch the video


Hey everyone! In today’s tutorial I will show you how to make an easy beaded memory wire cuff bracelet using the basic right angle weave beading stitch, and some simple wire wrapping. Use a combination of 4x6mm rondelle beads, and 4mm bicones to achieve the look demonstrated in the video, or get creative with other shapes and sizes you have on hand. As long as the beads are not much larger/heavier than what is shown, you won’t even need to add a clasp! The memory wire makes a perfect cuff bracelet frame, which holds its rounded shape.

Memory Wire Cuff Bracelet Materials:

✔ 3 loops – 2.25″ Diameter Memory Wire 

✔ 26 – 4x6mm Rondelle Beads 

✔ 50 – 4mm Bicone Beads 

✔ 4-5ft. – 24 or 26g Jewelry Wire  

✔ 4 – Memory Wire End Caps (optional) 

Jewelry Glue (if using end caps) 

✔  5ft. – 6lb. Fireline, or other beading thread

Beading Needle, Sz 10

Memory Wire Cutters 


Jewelry Pliers (round nose, chain nose)

Bead Mat 


To make approx. 7″ bracelet (as shown)

Additional Info:

I came up with this design when working with the contents of August Bargain Bead Box; theme: “Elegance.” If you haven’t heard of the subscription, check out my recent unboxing video to see an example of the contents. At just $17.95 shipped (US), it’s an amazing value, especially considering they include strands of semiprecious gemstone beads. Use coupon code OPAL2 to save $2 off your first bead box, if you haven’t already. Bead Boxes continue to be the creative fuel that spark my designs.
