How to Finish Memory Wire Ends



Sharing buttons:

Hi this Julie with Beadaholique.com and I'm going to show you how to finish

memory wire. So here I have a memory wire bracelet

what's great about it keeps it's shape. You can see it's got this wonderful

coil shape to it

and all you need to do to create a bracelet with it is to finish off the ends

so here is some memory wire without beads

it just has that nice coil shape

I'm going to show you three different ways that you can finish your ends after you've added

all your beads

so the first way and probably the easiest is to just

make a little loop at the end of your memory wire. So I've got some wire

looping pliers here

put the wire in it

and twist around

and we have a loop and that will secure your beads from falling off and

then you have something that you can add a little dangled to

that's one way

another way is with these little crimp beads that have a loop already

attached

I'm going to do that on the other end

so to work with these what you're going to do is

just pop it on there

take your crimping pliers now we're not going to crimp up near the loop because you

run the risk of actually hurting the loop itself

so what you're going to want to do

just crimp down at the bottom

You're just going to crimp down like usual

there you go and that's gonna stay on there securely

so the third and final way I want to show you and this way looks very clean is using

one of these little end caps

it's got a little hole in it

on one side and then it's nice the round ball

to apply these your going to take some GS Hypo cement

put it on the wire itself

take

one of these little guys, find the hole

and press onto place and then we're just gonna let that dry. It's going to dry

solid

So those are three separate options on how you can finish memory wire

it will allow you to make it great piece memory wire jewelry
