I love creating with Memory Wire because I get instant gratification. Skies the limit as to how to compile the beads or accent pieces chosen for placement on the wire.
I don’t use a board to lay out my beads, I let the beads direct me as to how many to use, the colors and the embellishments (charms, chains, etc.). I choose to wrap the ends of the wire up and away from any skin contact vs. down as many suggest. They say it is easier to wrap following the natural bending of the memory wire.
Memory wire is made from tempered steel and retains its shape if cared when handled. The wire is naturally coiled, therefore; it is important to always put the bracelets on in a coiled manner starting with either end of the bracelet, placing one rung at a time. I truly enjoy using this material.
