I found a similar tutorial on the web that explains the principal of how to connect the different sections fo memory wire, as it seems that this is what most people want to know.  If the instructions here just end up confusing you more, just shout and I'll try and clarify!  Hope this helps!

http://www.diynet.com/diy/cr_jewelry/article/0,2025,DIY_13762_3453578,00.html

A while ago I bought a cuff-bracelet, and at some point convinced myself that I could make that too...so off I went...and tried

This is what I've come up with so far...this has been my first meeting with memory wire, and, well, wire in general...

Here are more that I added and two necklaces...first attempt at those..















The pink one is made of 7 parts.



The red one is made of 9 parts/sections.





Inbetween I've also been playing and making these beaded stars and flowers....just thought I'd show them off.









There we go...that's about it...

Gorgeous! I love them. I really like that flower in the second box down, did you just make those up?

Which flower..the daisy with the stem or the one that looks like a rose?

The daisy is just wire looped with beads on it..there are quite a few similar patterns online, while the rose is similar to the pattern you find for beaded stars/snowflakes that i modified somewhat and added my own interpretation.  I'm going to try and make pins from the rose, or maybe a choker...I haven't really decided yet...

As for selling...I'm still deciding..for now friends and so on who want can get some, but I'll probably eventually add them to my site when I'm done revamping it (there's nothing there now!)

I was talking about the rose one, with the lime green leaf. I think that would look great as a choker! Or if you could do a tiny version, it'd be a very cute ring.

I agree, the rose is my favorite flower too, and would be great as a ring!  And thanks for the inspirational cuffs, I've been meaning to make some for a while but somehow haven't done it yet.  Those are REALLY beautiful!

Your "cuff-lets" are HOT!  I've been wanting to make one for some time now!  I bought some memory wire a while back, but can't locate it(blah).  I'll have to get some more and make these!  Great work!
