Memory wire coils are just simply fun to bead. You can make them elegant or spunky, like this one. I use silver foiled speckle colored lampwork beads with nice large holes and matched them up with different colored pairs of czech firepolished beads. Then I added a silver czech fire polished bead to bring the pattern together. The charm on this along with the colors makes it very spring or summer like.
You’ll need these supplies:
- 3 coils of memory wire
- 15 – 10mm round lampwork beads
