Learn Beading · Princess Wire-wrapped Ring

It’s an irresistible project you’re sure to love. Let’s get started! You’ll only need a few tools, so don’t worry about lengthy cleanup with this one (a nice bonus!). Grab a crystal clear or colored Swarovski crystal, a ring mandrel, wire cutters and some 24 gauge wire. The ring mandrel isn’t entirely necessary (you can use your own finger or some other tool), but I found it was pretty helpful in getting the wire formed for a good fit.

I chose a Swarovski crystal that was drilled at the top for added dimension and height. Cut a good length of wire (perhaps 12 to 20 inches, depending on how big your finger is; you can always snip the excess) and string your crystal. On the mandrel, center your bead. Pull the formed wire off the mandrel and bring one end of the wire around the base of the bead (to secure it), then bring that piece of wire back around until it’s pointing outward.

First Kumihimo Braid

As you can see they were a bit daunting. The Kumihimo package came with five strands of synthetic yarn to start you off, and this is the first braid I did. I must admit that I really enjoyed it. I enjoyed it so much that I pulled 60” of gold ribbon, purple orlec and navy orlec to braid. The ribbon I used singly but the orlec was tripled to match the ribbons thickness. This is a close up of the braid. Accepting this award means following some rules:1.

BSBP Deconstructed: Kumihimo Lariat

(one post down). THIS post is the first in a series of posts giving the gory details on my BSBP journey. Thanks for visiting, and if you like design minutiae, this is the post for you! The first piece I made for my recent BSBP (Bead Soup Blog Party) reveal was the kumihimo lariat, using semiprecious gemstone chips. When I first opened my generous bead soup, I saw so many delightful elements, but knew I wanted to work with the "wing. " toggle. I was drawn to the wing toggle on the right I wanted it to be front and center, so I turned my thoughts to deciding what I could create with a front closure.

I knew I would need to sort the chips by color, because I am far to anal to have them all randomly mixed up in my kumihimo. I wanted to make a clear boundary between each separate gemstone in the kumihimo, so I enameled some large-hole beads to match the gemstones: So, plan B. 8-Cord Kumihimo Spiral Bracelet Instructions.
