Round Memory Wire 

Memory Wire is one of the easiest stringing materials to use. Because of its hard temper, it holds its shape. It is incredibly easy to finish-off as well - you can simply use a Round Nose Pliers or Memory Wire Finishing Pliers to turn the ends into a small loop, or choose from a variety of findings specifically designed to finish Memory Wire. Beadalon offer two types of memory wire:
 
Remembrance Memory Wire is stainless steel wire, made into coils, and sized for rings, bracelets, and necklaces. The diameters are given in ranges to account for the variations in the manufacturing process. Remembrance is made in the USA, and is the highest quality available.
 
Steel Memory Wire is a carbon steel wire that has been plated with silver, antique brass color, and gold color. It is made into coils, and sized for rings, bracelets, and necklaces. The diameters are given in ranges to account for the variations in the manufacturing process. This wire is ideal when you want the shimmer and shine of a plated wire.

Flat Memory Wire 

Flat Memory Wire is an exciting innovation in the world of Memory Wire. The flat surface provides an excellent base for wire wrapping and for stringing large-hole beads. You can also combine Flat Memory Wire with special findings for completely customized designs. Like all memory wire, its hard temper allows it to retain its shape. It is incredibly easy to finish-off as well - you can simply use a Memory Wire Finishing Pliers to turn the ends into a small loop, or choose from a variety of findings specifically designed to finish flat memory wire. Beadalon offer two types of flat memory wire:
 
Flat Remembrance Memory Wire is stainless steel wire, made into coil-sized bracelets. The diameters are given in ranges to account for the variations in the manufacturing process. Remembrance is made in the USA and is the highest quality available.
 
Steel Memory Wire is a carbon steel wire that has been plated with silver, antique brass color, and gold color. It is made into coils, and sized for rings, bracelets, and necklaces.

Memory Wire Shears
To cut Memory Wire, use shears that are made especially for hardened wire. Do not use ordinary Wire Cutters because the Memory Wire will cut into the blades and ruin them.

Memory Wire Finishing Pliers
To loop the ends of Memory Wire, grasp the wire firmly and roll it against the natural curve. You can use Memory Wire Finishing Pliers that are specifically designed to give good leverage and smooth loops, or you can work with ordinary Round Nose Pliers or Bail-Making Pliers.
