Empty beads into bead spinner bowl. Mix them with your fingers.
Make a small loop at one end of the memory wire using round nose pliers. Make sure loop end is flush against wire so beads won't fall off.
Switch on bead spinner. Dip fingers into center of bowl to well up beads along the sides.
Separate wire, using both hands, then dip wire end slightly into bowl at an angle and allow the beads to feed onto wire. Turn wire end up before removing from bowl to slide the beads down onto the coils.
As coils fill, a random pattern will occur with the smaller and larger beads.
Fill coils until you have about ½" of wire remaining. Use round nose pliers to loop the wire end, and be sure to close end of loop.
