Method

1. Using your memory wire shears cut a length of memory wire approx 4 turns long (Tip: never cut Memory wire with your regular wire cutters as the strong steel in Memory Wire will destroy regular cutters).

2. Use your round nose pliers to create a loop at one end of the memory wire and snip off any excess wire with the memory wire shears, you may need to use your chain nose pliers to neaten up the loop.

3. Begin threading the beads onto the memory wire in the pattern shown in the picture above and listed below:

4. Once you have finished threading your beads onto the memory wire take your round nose pliers and create another loop very close to the last bead, use your memory wire shears to cut off any excess wire and neaten with your chain nose pliers. (Tip: when creating loops on memory wire always bend the wire out away from the centre of the circle as you will find this much easier).
