  1. Wish you would explain how the seashell porcelain charm necklace is finished off at the back. Is it just tied?

  2. Could I make a headband using this technique but with larger memory wire? Does memory wire come in larger circumference big enough for a headband?

    1. Hello Sally. A headband is a great idea. You might want to try “Necklace Memory Wire” in the search bar. These necklace memory wire will have a diameter of 9cm to 13cm. Happy Beading!
