Memory Wire Coil Wrap Bracelets

No matter what we call them, we all love those multi-strand bracelets that coil around our wrists -- no fasteners, no fuss, no muss. And I love making them, so it's a win-win for me!

We start with something called "Memory Wire." Memory wire is packaged in coils, which when opened resemble that marvelous toy called a Slinky. Memory wire "remembers" its shape and retains its coil form, allowing the bracelet to fit most wrists.


Memory Wire comes in the appropriate sizes for rings, bracelets, and necklaces. The size of the beads we use will affect how the bracelet fits: larger beads will create a tighter fit. This can make it tricky to get a perfect fit when ordering a bracelet online -- even though the coils will stretch if the bracelet seems too tight. To see a demonstration of how to enlarge a memory wire bracelet to fit more comfortably, refer to _this link_. If the bracelet is too loose, there's not much you can do but return it. I sometimes describe the fit of my bracelets by telling customers how they fit on my wrist, which is fairly small (6 inches just above the wrist bone.)


Now that we have the foundation of our wrap (coil) bracelet, the possibilities are endless. Below I am sharing photos of many of the wrap (coil) bracelets available in _my Etsy shop_. Come over and take a look. Just click on the "Bracelets" section of the shop to see all of the different types of bracelets I offer (including wrap bracelets).
