How to Cut and End Memory Wire
 
Memory wire is a thin tempered stainless steel wire used to create chockers, bracelets, anklets, and rings that make a bold bead statement. Rigid memory wire is corrosion and tarnish-resistant and, like a spring, it snaps back to its original form when expanded and released.
