Memory wire has spring-like properties and is frequently used for quick jewelry projects. It is one the easier stringing materials to work with used by beaders and holds bracelet designs snug against your wrist. Ours is made of stainless steel so it resists rust and discoloration. The steel is very hard so we recommend using heavy duty cutters or memory wire cutters to cut it. This will also help you get an edge that looks clean and is safe to handle.
