Memory wire is so handy as a bracelet finding - bead it up and slap it on, right?  But you can really get creative as you can see from this excellent tutorial from Gina of @ORCHIDandOpal. It is such an unusual application for pretty crystal cup chain. 

What she does is to wire wrap the crystal cup chain such that it winds around the druk beads strung on the memory wire. She uses 22G twisted wire but you can also use 24G wire. The full list of materials is in the description box of the video (click through to Youtube to see). 

Remember never to use your flush cutters to trim memory wire. That's a sure way to ruin them. Always use memory wire cutters.
