Finishing Memory Wire Jewelry

There are two ways to finish the ends of Memory Wire. You can finish with ball ends or by turning each end into a loop.

To Finish with Beads:

STEP 1
Insert the tip of the glue into the bead end. Squeeze the glue so you fill the cavity of the bead.
STEP 2
Insert one end of the Memory Wire into the bead end and hold it there for a few seconds. Set the wire aside so the epoxy can cure completely (5 minutes) before stringing your beads. Once the glue is dry, begin stringing your beads. Finish the other end by following these steps again. Let the glue dry overnight before wearing your finished piece.

To Turn the End Into a Loop (no ball ends or Epoxy needed):

STEP 1
Grip the end of the memory wire in the nose of your round-nose pliers and hold firmly.
STEP 2
Rotate your wrist away from your body, forming a loop in the wire. Begin stringing your beads. Finish the other end by following these steps again. To enhance your design, you can hang a charm off the end. Click here to learn how to make a simple loop or wrapped loop.
