MEMORY WIRE CUTTER / HEAVY GAUGE WIRE & CHAIN CUTTER
MEMORY WIRE CUTTER ( SHEAR )
A “Memory Wire Cutter” is one of the two main tools for creating a Serendipity BEAD STEW bracelet. Memory wire is an extremely hard wire, which is why it holds its round shape and springs back into place when stretched opened up to fit onto your wrist.
Because memory wire is so incredibly hard, regular wire cutters used in jewelry making, such as a “Side Cutter”, will be totally trashed and rendered useless if used on memory wire, so stick to using a "Memory Wire Cutter” or a heavy duty wire cutter from your household toolbox to cut it.
A “Memory Wire Cutter” is also very handy for cutting heavier wire (16 gauge+), as well as more substantial chain that’s sometimes used in chunkier jewelry designs.
