How to Finish Memory Wire Ends


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
