Bluff Road Art Glass. Wire weaving ring Tutorial. Elemental Ombre Necklace. Since ancient times there has been the idea that each and every thing on the planet (and beyond) is made up of a combination of the four elements Earth, Air, Fire, and Water.

Elemental Ombre Necklace

It was thought that the earth, the universe, even our own bodies are made up of these four elements. Our Elemental Ombre Necklaces are sparkling representations of each of the classic elements - earth, wind, water and fire. Using size 15/0 Cut Miyuki Seed beads (15C) we will be creating a gorgeous shimmering ombre effect with multiple strands to showcase the delicate cut seed beads. Each of these sparkling Elemental Ombre necklaces capture different components of ourselves and the lovely earth.

By stringing 7 sections of either cool or warm colors, the size 15/0 Cut Seed beads seem to melt into one another. Once you've strung your beads onto 20 strands of C-flex beading wire, combine them using a set of cones and chain for the full gradient effect. Be sure to have a ruler handy to measure your 2 inch sections. Firefly Wrap Bracelet.

***Wire Wrapping 101- an overly detailed account!***

Wrap 26 gauge wire around the three support wires. The three wires need to stay flat and parallel. You can use blue painter's tape on either side of where you intend to wrap to hold the wires in place. Trim off the ends ensuring that they are both on the same side of the main support wires. Tap down the ends with your soft jaw pliers. Now you may begin to form the wires around the cabochon or focal bead. Holding the first bind in place with your soft jaw pliers, bend the front outside wire to angle against the bind.

Then repeat on the other side of the same wire. Beading Thread. Wire-weave technique: Double-weave ribbon - Facet Jewelry Making. The wires used in this style of weaving fall into two different categories.

Wire-weave technique: Double-weave ribbon - Facet Jewelry Making

The frame wires give a piece of jewelry its form. After being shaped, the frame wires remain mostly stationary while the weaving wire wraps around them. The weaving wire is usually at least two gauges thinner than the frame wires. It holds the frame wires together and creates various textures. To create the braided wire bracelet, you’ll use 18-gauge (1.0 mm) wire for the frame wires and 26-gauge (0.4 mm) wire for the weaving wire.

NOTE: If you’re right-handed, hold the piece you are working on in your left hand and weave from left to right with your right hand (as shown in the photos). Elemental Ombre Necklace. Loam Links Convertible Silk Ribbon Necklace/Bracelet. Loam Links Convertible Silk Ribbon Necklace/Bracelet.
