Tools and Supplies Needed: Needle nose pliers Wire cutters Round nose pliers Wooden dowel Draw plate 20 gauge wire 24 or 26 gauge wire Tape For a bracelet: End caps, toggle, beads of your choice.

What is Viking knit (also known as trichinopoly)? It is a type of weaving that is centuries old, and has even been found in archaeological sites in Scandinavia dating back to 8th Century A.D., or the Viking era. Today, we see Viking knit chains woven mostly with wire and used to make beautiful necklaces, bracelets, and even earrings. To get started, you will need a wooden dowel and draw plate, this can be bought as a kit (I found mine at Michael’s.)The wire I will be making my Viking knit chain with is 24 gauge, but 26 can be used as well. There is single knit and double knit. (Each numbered step will correspond with a picture) 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Wrap one end of the wire around the top of the flower, to keep it in place while weaving, and string it through a petal. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12.

The Crafty Geek - What is Viking Knit? I am often asked, "What is viking knit? " So, I've decided to share my technique in photos, a lovely viking knit bracelet from beginning to end. Lovely handmade chains have been found in Viking treasure troves in Scandinavia. Made from melted down coins turned into fine wire, these chains were made using a loop in loop technique. Talk about wearing your wealth! These same techniques can be used today, though we don't tend to use coin silver anymore. To begin, use some cheap craft wire. Wrap the four loops together into a little bundle and then cut off the excess craft wire. Open up the four loops like a flower. I like to use knitting needles as my core, but you can use any regularly shaped mandrel. Take the long end of the wire, and move to your next petal to the left.

Cross the long end of the wire over the top, making another loop. The technique shown here is what is called single knit. When you reach the end of your piece of wire, tuck the short end under when completing the loop. Another Project Completed | everythingjules. Awhile back I started a four foot rope necklace of Kumihimo using size 11 seed beads and instead of c-lon cord, I used button thread. My reasoning was that with the thread, I could use a bead needle to string the beads on with; making it a lot easier in the long run.

It took a lot longer to work on and half way through it, I started thinking this is more than I want to do and maybe start over on c-lon cord; the tread made the whole process more difficult. I didn’t want to continue, but felt I had invested this much time into the project that I should keep going. So I did. I had trouble coming up with an idea for matching earrings; after all the beads were tiny and didn’t have that “pop” factor you need with earrings. After showing one of the ladies at “Thistle Beads” in Niantic (my favorite bead shop), she suggested I use the thread for the earrings as well and make tassels. Happy creating everyone!

Different stringing materials, whether it be wire, beading cord, wool or ribbon, will produce different results. The beauty of the knitting spool is that it is very easy to use, so enjoy experimenting with it and send us some pictures of the finished results for our Gallery Page.

Many different stringing materials / threads can be used with the knitting spool. The instructions show casting on with wire on the 5-pin spool – casting on is the same for the 3-pin spool and for any stringing material used. If you plan to knit with beads, add plenty of beads before you begin knitting. Knitting with beads already strung onto your thread material can produce many different results. There are no hard and fast rules on what beads you can use, although anything larger than 4mm may make it difficult to knit and affect the tension. Too many 4mm beads, especially on the 3-pin spool, may look too chunky and cluttered. Here are a few ideas to get you started: Seed beads – size 8 (3mm) and size 6 (4mm). Как быстро изготовить приспособление для создания украшений из проволоки. Обсуждение на LiveInternet.

При желании, аналогичное устройство можно изготовить в домашних условиях всего за полчаса. Для этого вам потребуется небольшая дощечка из твердой древесины (например, бука), дрель и тонкое сверло. В приведенном ниже примере рассматривается прямоугольная схема расположения отверстий. Можно также располагать отверстия по радиальной схеме. Выберите подходящую дощечку и прикрепите к ней (например, с помощью скотча) прямоугольник, вырезанный из листа бумаги в клетку. В нашем случае отверстия будут располагаться с шагом 5 мм.

Просверлите отверстия прямо через бумагу. Удалите бумагу и обработайте поверхность дощечки мелкозернистой шкуркой. Теперь нужно изготовить штырьки.

Jewelry Board Tutorial | whippy cake. Last summer I attempted to make a jewelry board to store all my accessories in one central location. I’m not the most handy/industrial lady but I smacked a few nails and doused the thing in glue and it held up pretty well. It wasn’t the prettiest or most practical jewelry holder but it was definitely functional. I knew I would want to attempt to make a newer, more improved, refined jewelry board but it ended up taking me me a year to find the motivation.

I was asked to post a tutorial on the first one I made but to be honest I didn’t take any pictures of the process and I wasn’t sure it was really a good design with the spike nails and industrial staples poking out every where. I was actually a little worried one of my kids would poke an eye out or get scratched on it.

This time around I kept track of my supply list and took pictures of the building process so I could share them with you. Supplies used: 1.

Jewelry Archives. The very second I heard about Kumihimo I was online ordering a starter kit for myself. The. Very. Second. When it got here I jumped around the living room like a loon clutching my bubble mailer. I hadn’t even opened it yet. When I opened it, I jumped right in. Beads and Crystals Ring. This delicate beaded ring is made using the same stitch as the peyote rings, bracelets, and beads that we’ve posted before. This project is all about how changing up the beads used can make a huge impact on the look of the finished ring. Supplies: - 3mm fire polished Czech crystals - 8/0 seed beads - 11/0 seed beads - 11/0 cylinder beads - beading needle - beading thread (I used Nymo 00) You can make this ring as tall as you want, but I found 7 crystals to be a nice size. If you use 7 crystals like I did you’ll need 14 each of the 8/0 and 11/0 seed beads, then a couple grams of the 11/0 cylinders.

You could replace the 11/0 cylinders with 15/0 seed beads if you prefer. From this point on, I’ll refer to the 3mm crystals as “crystals,” the 8/0 seed beads as “large,”, the 11/0 seed beads as “medium,” and the 11/0 cylinders as “small.” Continuing to use the size notations makes the instructions unnecessarily complicated!
