How to Make Wire Bracelets with Beads and Gemstone madeinaday.comI am super excited today to share with you my gold wire wrapped bangle bracelets I made this week! My father in-law gave me a Bourbon & Bowties Wire Wrapped Bracelet for a Christmas present and man, I am in love with it. These bracelets started trending last year, and I didn’t think  much of them until I got one! I wear it everywhere, love, love, love it!

Well since I also love DIY jewelry, I just had to make some myself. So after closely inspecting the B & B one and searching the internet for the right way to make these so they do not fall apart, I figured out how they are made. Then off the craft store to find some beads.

Well to my surprise most craft stores do not sell gemstone beads, only glass and regular beads. So I found some beads I thought would look just as great as the gemstones. If you love the gemstones and only want gemstones, you could try specialty bead stores in your area. Let’s get started~

Note: There are a lot of steps to making these, but they really are easy to make. Once you’ve made one, you’ve got it down!

How to make a Stone Wire Wrapped Bracelet madeinaday.comInstructions:

After inspecting the B & B bracelet, I found that they make their bracelets a little different than the some of the videos I came across. I made some adjustments to mine so they would be sturdy and not come apart very easily.

One thing you will need to make this is a bracelet sizer or an object that will simulate your wrist size. I happened to have a Birch wood branch I use in my home decor that worked perfectly. You need to be able to wrap the wire around it, stretch it tight and mold it to the size of your object.

Here you can watch the video by Beadaholique. If you are a visual person, you may find it easier to watch how it is made. NOTE: I did mine a little different than the video to make my bracelets more secure and durable like the B & B one. 

Let’s get started!

Single Bead Wire Bracelet

Using a bracelet sizerYou are going to use around 3 feet of wire for each bracelet. Wrap the wire around the sizer five times. Leave at least 8-9 inches of wire at one end of the five rows. Trim the wire.

Pinch wires and wrap wire around braceletPinch the wires together at one end and slide the wire off the sizer, holding the wire tight and making sure the wires are evenly together.

Wrap wire around braceletPut a kink in the long wire with your pliers.

Add a bead to wire braceletPut another kink in that wire and add your bead to the wire. Pull it down snug to the bracelet.

Wrap the end of the wire around the bracelet base two times and cut the wire. Bend the cut the end it under the bracelet and tuck in the sharp ends so they will not snag your skin or fabric. And that’s it for the single bead bracelet!

Multiple Bead Wire Bracelet

Let’s break down the different things I did for my bracelets:

  • Adding 5 loops of wire to make the base of the bracelet instead of 3 like the video above.
  • Wrapping the wire around the bead 2-5 times.
  • Using bent nosed pliers for tucking in the wires and pinching the looped wires around the beads.
  • Adding 5 beads to a make a bracelet.

I love these bracelets!

    1. Hi Lindsay,
      I Bought the wood beads on amazon, there is a link in the supply list above. The other beads are from Michaels. I do like hobby Lobby beads as well as independent bead store. I did not use wire in this bracelet, it is elastic cording. I like to use the Beadalon Brand of wire though. I hope this helps. Thanks for reading!
