Need Ideas for Using Necklace Memory Wire – but for Things Other Than Making Chokers

by Daisy.

for Things Other Than Making Chokers  - Discussion on Jewelry Making Journal

Do you have any ideas for different uses for necklace memory wire – rather than making chokers?

I have some necklace memory wire, but am stuck for new ideas.

Thank you for your ideas and help!

    I have done peyote beading on the chokers but am also interested in something new to do with them. If you find an answer PLEASE let me know.

  • Hi Daisy, I’ve used memory wire for various earring designs.

    Thank you Rena for your wonderful site and great inspiration. Did you just chop pieces off the necklace memory wire?

  • daisy says:

    Will do Kay
    A long time ago I saw something about cutting a coil up and making ‘swags’ for a necklace but can’t find anything on the internet or remember how they put them together!
    I am just hoping some of the great designers on here may have some ideas!

  • Daisy, I’ve created earrings similar to the ones in my Face Framing Earrings tutorial here (of course without hammering the memory wire):

    Thank you so much Rena and with not hammering the memory wire I could maybe add some beads

  • Exactly, Daisy! 🙂

    I recently made a suncatcher using necklace memory wire. It came out fairly heavy & stretched out. Next time, I’d use lighter materials or a shorter piece. It’s still pretty though!

  • daisy says:

    That’s a good idea Moogie, thanks.

    Hi, Daisy, I’ve used left over sections of necklace memory wire to string heavy crystal points on so the beads can be fanned out instead of bunched up. Just make a loop on one end, string the beads, make another loop on the other end and attach a chain or cord.

    Nancy, that’s a brilliant idea!! Thank you so much for sharing
