Making jewelry is a fun hobby and for some can become a full time business. At least you will be able to make beautiful and unique jewelry to wear and give as gifts. As with any hobby, you have to start with the basics and using memory wire to make jewelry is a method that requires a skill a little less than some of the other. Memory wire jewelry does not need a clasp or fancy crimping and one size fits all.

Wire wire memory is flexible, that comes back to its original form when not stretched – something like an amulet. It comes in necklace, bracelet and ring sizes. Simply cut a section for the size you want and string on beads!

Of course, the first step (and most fun) is to decide on the bills! Some people are inspired by artisan glass beads from Murano fact, other precious stones and pearls for the great variety of glass beads. Some like to use the above in their pearl jewelry designs! You are only limited by your own imagination and there is no combination "wrong" account in order to choose accounts that "talk" to you and incorporate them into their design.

To make wire jewelry accounts of memory, you need:

1. A tool that cuts the thread of memory (can be found at any supply store accounts – do not use regular wire cutters as soon ruin them!)

2. The thread of memory (sold in packages where you can get 2 or 3 pieces of jewelry each packet)

3. Needle-nose pliers

4. The accounts!

Step 1 – Cut the thread of memory with size. For a bracelet or ring, decide how many times you want to wrap yourself around your wrist or finger – wrap the right wire around his own wrist and cut to size. A necklace can only go around your neck once (well, I could probably do a wrap around couple of times but I think it would be difficult to raise and lower). You want size so that the ends overlap a bit.

Step 2 – Now you have to close one end so that the beads do not slip. Take the tip of the pliers needle tip and the right place at the end of the wire. Now take the wire on the other hand and bend it around pliers. The cable is quite difficult, so this may be difficult and yoy may have a hard time with this at first. Try practicing some more pieces small first until you can make a perfect little loop. Make sure the loop is closed accounts that can not escape. Do not worry – if you screw up you can simply cut the end and try again! You want the loop to be as small as possible so as not detrimental to our design

Some people also Glue on small cap silver beads finish. While this sounds a little better, you run the risk of the glue not holding and all your accounts slipped. This happened to me once and that is why I use the loop method. To make the loops look a little flashy, just hang a number of them!

Step 3 – String the bills! If you is making a necklace that has a certain design or a centerpiece in the middle, will be wary of the accounts exactly the space so as to be symmetrical and the centerpiece is in the exact center.

Step 4 – Close the other end. Using the method in step 2, near the other end and you're done!
