Memory Wire: Use It To Create A Fun Spiral Bracelet

Xuron®'s Model 2193 Hard Wire &  Memory Wire Cutter easily and cleanly cuts hard wire

Memory wire is used by jewelry artist for it’s ability to retain shape allowing for a wider variety of design options.  Our Brand Ambassador, Ashley Bunting, used memory wire to make this cute spiral bracelet.

To the rescue, Xuron®’s Model 2193 Hard Wire and Memory Wire Cutter.  This cutter is a full bypass shear and cuts by cleanly breaking the wire as opposed to squeezing it.  And, there’s an extra bonus – you get a nice  flat end on your wire.
