Ah, the memories...

This is my first foray into memory/remembrance wire. I think I like it. There is a bit of learning curve, or there was for me. Figuring out sizing and what beads will fit...little things like that. But once I thought it over I was able to get it going. I wasn't sure if I should keep this one as my first hidden experiment or not. I ended up deciding to take it to work for an some constructive criticism. The consensus was to make more...this one sold with in a half hour of me being there. :-)

Ooh your jewelry is very pretty!

Look online for suggesetions about a cheap homemade light box. It would really make your pieces pop, especially if you're trying to market them online.

Memory wire is great! No clasp needed, just beads and you're done.

I would never have guessed that you'd never used the memory wire before. These are just gorgeous. Definitely make more.

Kokopelli,
That is exactly right...no findings. Just beads and go. I have lost your blog...where did it go? :-(
Leslie,
Thank you for your kind words and the suggestion for a light box. I am definitely going to check into it. I often lament my lack of photography skills.
Bev,
I would definitely try it. I would see it at the store and think I will try that later...and later....and later. Then a friend lent me some books on beading so I could get some inspiration/new techniques and I finally gave in. You already having it is more than half the battle won. I bet you will like it as much as I do.
Boo,
It really was a first try. I didn't even feel confident that I done it exactly right. :-) I have worked on some more and will let you know what reception they get.
