Be sure to use memory wire shears since the hardened steel of memory wire will most likely damage standard wire cutters.
Memory wire also looks nice as a single length that has enough coils to pass through all of the holes in the strand separators or spacer bars, i.e. three complete loops for a triple-strand spacer bar. Using this technique, you only need to string on enough beads between the spacer bars until you get to the ends of the wire. Glue half-drilled metallic beads onto the ends of the wire to keep the beads in place and give the jewelry piece a nice professional finished look.
