Project Instructions

Use memory wire shears to cut the memory wire into two to six coil sections. 

Empty Toho beads into bead spinner bowl. Mix them with your fingers. 

Make a small loop at one end of the memory wire, using round nose pliers. Make sure loop end is flush against wire, so beads won't fall off. 

Switch on bead spinner. Dip fingers into center of bowl to well up beads along the sides. 

Separate wire. Using both hands, dip wire end slightly into bowl at an angle and allow beads to feed onto wire. Turn wire end up before removing from bowl to slide beads down onto the coils. As coils fill, a random pattern will occur with the colored beads. 

Fill coils until you have just over two coils filled. Slide on six 3mm copper beads. 

Dip coil back into the bead spinner and fill the coil until beads are lined up with the 3mm beads below. String on another six 3mm copper beads and finish beading the coils with the bead spinner. Leave ½" from the end of the wire free. 

Use round nose pliers to loop the end, being sure to close end of loop. 

Repeat steps with the other coil.

Tips

The bracelet shown has 12 beaded coils. You can cut the memory wire using memory wire shears if you want a smaller beaded coil. It is very helpful to have extra beads in the bead spinner bowl. Skim only the surface of the beads to load the wire. Do not let wire hit bottom or sides of the bowl. This will cause beads to fly everywhere.
