Memory Wire Earrings by Catherine Smith  - featured on Jewelry Making Journal

I had small coils of memory wire and didn’t know what to do with it.

I was messing around with it and made earrings with beads and silver beads.

I’m not sure if they will ever sell, but it was fun trying something different.

  1. These are very pretty Catherine, and I like the idea of memory wire because it holds it shape so well. Very creative!

  2. Catherine says:

    Thank you Donna. I love it too, except that it’s difficult to do much more with it.

  3. A great way to use your bits of memory wire, Catherine. And I agree with Donna about the wire holding its shape nicely. Also, these earrings look like they have a wonderful swingy motion when worn!

  4. This is a great idea, Catherine, and cute earrings! I use memory wire too, and will keep this idea in mind. 🙂

  5. Very creative Catherine. Also love the blue colored beads you used. I am sure these will sell.

  6. Great use for small pieces of memory wire. Very cute!

  7. Catherine says:

    Thank you Tamara.

  8. Catherine says:

    Thank you Kathy! I hope they sell. They are 4mm turquoise blue magnesite beads. I ordered them and accidentally ordered the wrong size, didn’t know what to do with them, there was enough for 2 pairs of earrings.

    Thank you Kathryn. I’m sure there are so many uses for small memory wire, but it’s all I could come up with, I’ve only made bracelets with it so didn’t know what do do with the small coil I had.

  10. Catherine says:

    Thank you Rena. I tried to shape into smaller circle around a ring mandrel, but it was difficult to do. That is a tough wire!

  11. Dyanne Everett-Cantrell says:

    Great idea!! I have several pieces of memory wire laying around!

  12. Catherine says:

    I made another pair of earrings, sticking with the memory wire. This time I used garnet and crystal 3mm glass Czech beads. I’m waiting for more earwires to come in.

  13. I love this idea. I think I might even add a dangle on the ends.

  14. I have been revamping some earrings that I had made some time ago using Swarovski crystals and had wirewrapped them on some hoop frames. I did them as part of a class project. I didn’t want to do the wirewrapping again, so I saw somewhere the idea to use ring size memory wire and create earrings with the memory wire and the crystals. The idea said to use the memory wire caps and has a great finished look, BUT trying to glue them onto the memory wire ends without difficulty is testing my limited patience. 🙂
