Wrapped Chain Bracelet Here, we will discuss how to make a lot of figure 8 connectors while conserving your wire. Step 1: Straighten a segment of wire at least 1 inch long. Be certain that you have a flush cut on the end of the wire. See the picture below-left. Step 2: Grasp near the end of the wire with your Fine Step Jaw Pliers. Step 3: Make a loop in the end of the wire. Step 4: Remove your wire from your pliers. Step 5: Now we need to make the second loop in the figure 8 connector. Step 6: Complete the second loop as shown below-right. Step 7: Remove the wire from the jaws of your pliers and it should appear as shown below-left. Step 8: Now you need to cut the excess wire with your flush cutter. Step 9: Your finished figure 8 connector should appear as shown below-right. Step 10: Because the cut of the wire in step 8 left a sharp end on the wire on your spool, in order to be ready to make your next figure 8 connector, you need to cut about 1/16 inch of wire of the end of the wire.
DIY // Swirl Ring — Bettina's Blog - Something handmade I am a ring addict, and because this Ring is one of my favorites I thought why not share how I make them. So this weeks DIY is my so-called “Swirl Ring”. Hope you enjoy! Let’s get started with the things you’ll need to make the ring… What you’ll need: Ok, do you have everything? 1. 2. 3. Do not hammer your 2 wire ends yet, if you do so you won’t be able to curve and shape them easily. 4. 5. By hammering the wirework it ensures your design will curve naturally around the top surface of your finger. I took this little cutie a step farther and gave it a little sparkle. My little Swirl Ring design can now be ordered on etsy, just in case you don’t feel like getting into this Swirl Ring DIY or don’t have the tools on hand.

Journey of Belle Bride Angela.... DIY Lace Cuff Tutorial Bonjour As I mentioned in my wedding update post, my mother designed and made her own wedding dress, she was an extremely creative lady! It meant a lot to me to include an element of this into my wedding day, so I decided to use some of the lace to make my DIY wedding own vintage lace wedding cuff and today I thought I would share my DIY lace cuff tutorial. Ok, so while I was looking for lace style items for my wedding I came across this image of a beautiful lace wedding cuff on ‘Pinterest’. It’s actually available on Etsy.com Here’s the link: Etsy Weddings This got me thinking, so I researched some more and found some beautiful lace bridal cuffs including these: Victoria Mary Vintage I‘d already chosen my dress, which has two different layers of lace on it and being a big fan of lace anyway it was going to feature heavily throughout my wedding theme. Luckily for me, my Mom has collected lots of lace remnants over the years so I thought I’d have a go at making one for myself. Best Wishes

DIY Macrame Bracelet Growing up by the beach in Southern California, the ability to knot a macrame bracelet was practically a right of passage. Although those days are long behind us, we’ve never forgotten the ever-so-simple square knot technique. This time, however, we’re replacing hemp and wooden beads for more updated elements like colorful nylon cord and glossy metal charms. Happy knotting! You’ll need: Start by cutting the knotting cord into two 30 inch, two 20 inch and one 10 inch lengths. Center the 30 inch cord under the two middle strands. Pull tightly and slide the knot up to the top. Finish the 2nd half of the square knot by folding the left cord over the middle strands and under the right cord. Pull tightly and repeat the steps – left, right, left, right . . . To finish the knots, thread one of the cords onto a needle and sew up the center of 3-4 knots along the backside. Repeat the same step on the other cord. After sewing up both knotting cords, trim away any excess.
