  1. I have used a method similar to this and used a 15” strand of colorful jade beads to alternate with pieces of silk on memory wire to make a bracelet. I folded the silk onto the memory wire same as shown on this diy project where the silk was folded and threaded onto eyepins. This project could get expensive using the finished silk pieces, but for my bracelet I used unfinished silk strips.
