Memory wire is made from a hardened steel wire so we highly recommended using memory wire cutters alongside your memory wire because even the most heavy duty of normal wire cutters will be ruined by the super tough hardened wire if not instantly, then over a short space of time. The fabulous thing about working with memory wire is that it looks a lot more complex than it actually is; to make an effective piece of handmade jewellery all you need to do is thread your chosen beads onto your memory wire in any order you like, in order to finish your creation off easily you can either create a loop using round nose pliers on each end to stop your beads falling off or glue an end cap. An alternative to using beads try threading some rubber tubing over your memory wire, our Jewelry Tube is perfect for a cord like look to embellish you could either thread beads with larger holes over the top or just add a pendant to sit comfortably in the middle.
Because memory wire is hardened steel wire that returns to its perfect circular shape after being expanded and released, this makes memory wire the ideal foundations to a structured piece of jewellery, for example a cuff using multiple loops connected by Swarovski Bicones on eye pins or craft wire or a bracelet using continuous loops. Why not experiment creating memory wire rings using 4mm Czech Glass Faceted Beads or a choker with a Swarovski pendant. Try using two loops of bracelet memory wire to create large hoop earrings simply thread on a selection of small beads then loop each end of your memory wire and link each end to an ear wire a super quick and easy way to glam up any outfit. Our memory wire is available in both gold and silver plated and in 2 sizes.
Our flat memory wire is smooth and flat, it is easy to work with and wonderful for wire wrapping beads for a stunning floating effect. The highly reflective surface enhances the sparkle of transparent beads and illuminates them from within. Available in both gold plated and silver plated to cater to all of your memory wire projects.
There are a couple of ways to finish off your piece of memory wire jewellery, firstly you can loop or bend the ends to stop your beads from rolling off or the other option (no pliers necessary) is memory wire end caps, they are a quick and easy way to professionally finish off a memory wire necklace ring or bracelet, just simply glue a cap onto each end glue using our zap jewellery gel for a secure tidy end. We stock a selection of colours shapes and sizes to cater for your jewellery tastes.
