by Tracia Williams


Friendship BraceletsYou will need:

  • 22 Gauge plastic coated wire
  • Small "E" beads - any color
  • Wire cutters
  • Ruler
  • Pencil


  1. Cut three strands of wire large enough to fit around your wrist, plus an additional 4". Cut one additional length of wire 4½" longer than the other strands.
  2. Twist approximately 1½" of the ends together, leaving the longer strand extended 1". Roll this piece around a pencil to form a loop.
  3. Wrap the end of the long strand tightly around the base of the loop to cover the other loose ends and to hold the loop closed. Clip any excess wire from the wrapped strand.
  4. Slide beads onto one of the strands of wire, using as few or as many beads as desired. Twist the remaining strands together around the beads leaving 2" at the end of the strands.
  5. Twist the wire ends tightly for about 1" of the remaining wire, fold tightly at center of twisted end area, bend to form a hook. Wrap one of the remaining wire ends tightly around the base of the hook to secure the hook then clip off remaining wires.
