  • Memory Wire Jewellery

    I recently bought a pair of memory wire cutters and have been making some bracelets with it.
    the thing is, i am struggling with bending the ends over so there are no sharp bits sticking out.
    is it just a case of using brute force or is there a technique out there to make it easier?

    Thanks

    Brute force always a winner!

    I personally just use brute force. It takes a while but I bend the end around some round nose pliers and they usually set quite nicely...maybe I'm super freakily strong...that would be cool.
