DMC Memory Thread: Has anyone used this?

I saw DMC Memory Thread at Michael's yesterday. It's a thin fiber-wrapped wire. I almost bought some but decided to think about what I might do with it first (imagine that, resisting an impulse buy craft item!). I don't see too much about it on the web for other than embroidery use -- has anyone used it for jewelry? I think it has possibilities. Here are the colors and you get 3 ft for $2.99, if I recall correctly.

Beads: Frosted Facets

I took inspiration from Jibby and Juna's fragment carvings, and Beadworx's metallic powders, and Stillpoint Works' matte finish carvings, and these little pastel beads I had seen a while ago (that I finally found the link for) by Unaodd.
Thanks ladies!

beads: Sealpoint Wraps

Years ago my grandmother's neighbor had Coco, an old Siamese cat who sat on the bed and made an mean sound when you walked by. These are named after her (or actually, colored after her!)
