282  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: what can i make with these stones? on: June 26, 2005 11:17:42 AM
You lucky girl with all those stones!
You could wrap them in wire or you could bead a holder for them (a cobouchon - I have no idea how to spell it correctly at the moment).
I think if you started to drill them, some may end up cracking and chipping apart. They you'd have to polish up the cracked bits and the whole blah blah blah.
I think those would be the easiest things....
283  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Green/Blue Bracelet w/ Sprials - Pic & Tutorial on: June 26, 2005 11:10:39 AM
Based on an old Bead & Button issue... I'd be more than happy to share how I made it.


Well, since some people seem to like it, I can give a verbal description for now (I'll also assume that people have a little knowledge of basic beading....but if not Bead and Button & Bead Style have great insturctions of the basics in the back of every issue)

I used:
flat rectangular beads (they were nice because they were 2-tone blue and green). Flat works best for this project because it sits nicely.
A vial of silver lined chinese seed beads
head pins
a whole lot of jump rings

First
Make a chain using your jump rings (I find it's cheaper than buying the chain). You want to use ones that are about a 1/4" in diameter, maybe a little smaller.

Second
Take a head pin and put on 1 seed bead. Add your flat rectangular bead. Add another seed.

Third:
Use your round nose pliers to start the spiral.

Fourth
Before you keep going with the spiral, put the head pin through one of the rings on the jump ring chain. Then use your flat-head pliers to finish the spiral. Once you've made as much of a spiral as you can, fold it over the jump ring flat against your rectangular bead. This will hold it on to the chain.

Fifth:
Keep doing the above steps. 2 sets of sprials/beads should go on to every other jump ring in the chain. Be sure to avoid attaching them on the same side of the chain.

Hopefully the directions make sense (I think they will if you keep looking back at the picture...)

Hopefully, I can get the picture to come up.
This is based on an idea from a Bead and Button issue from last year, but I changed it a little bit.
A very simple design (and if you want to know how to do it, I'd be more than pleased to share).

I am also from Halifax. There aren't too many places to go, but lots of creative people....
For fabric scraps you can go to Chintzy's on Birmingham street (across from City Center Atlantic) they often have beautiful F. Schumacher pieces for a buck or two...Just ignore the owner - she's pretty crusty...I used to work there....
