1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Threaded earring Tute. (img chubby) on: July 24, 2009 06:10:43 PM
    Sorry about the delay guys! Had some major problems.
But finally! The Tutorial!

Things you will need:
Wire cutters
Round nose pliers
16g wire (any color)
14g wire (smae color)
sewing thread or embrodiery floss (1-4 colors)
wire coiler (or a ink well from a pen)
Ear hooks

Note for the pictures to turn out good I used embrodery floss fully intact
the thread wouldn't show up.
If you use embroidery floss seperate it down to one thin strand.


Step 1:
Cut a length of the 16g wire

Step 2:
Roughly shape it and then coil the 14g wire

(I forget to photograph this part)

Step 3:
Slide the coil onto the 16g shape.

Step 4:
Close the shape and tie the string onto the top.

(I know it's hard to see.)

Step 5:
Begin wrappingstart by taking the thread and wrapping it
down to the center coil.

Step 6:
Bring the thread around to the front and and up
to the coil to the right of the closure.


Step 7:
Continue in that manner
(Note: wrap to right on the top left on the bottom.)

Keep going!

Step 8:
Bring it back up and tie to the top
Start the next color by tieing it up top and
start it wrapping halfway down the "hoop"

Same wrapping as before
Downwards from the 1st coil upwards from the center

Note: I flipped this picuters horozontally.

Step 9:
Start lower down for the next color tie off
and start always by the center.

Step 10: ENJOY!!

Front and back with seperated embrodiery floss.

I'll try to get better pictures sorry.

Show me your results!!
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / A recipe for disaster (pic chubby) on: July 02, 2009 11:43:02 AM
3rd completed jewlery project!

You take:
1 part mother refusing to buy any more beads until you use half of your stash
1 part chain
82 parts head pins
33 parts jump rings
1 part pliers
1 part snip
4 parts band-aids
100+ beads
many hours.

mix it all together and what do you get?
a disaster!

This necklace was created because my mom told me she forbids me to
buy any more beads until I use half of my stash. She never said how many things I have to make.
I started around 11pm and was finished by 2am

How it hangs. It's made up of tons of strands with a mix of beads.

What I mean by strands.

A crappy action shot.

Hope you enjoy!
I'm think of making a matching bracelet and earrings!
Comments and critism welcome.
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / My take on threaded earrings. on: July 01, 2009 01:13:40 PM
 I've been seeing threaded earrings all over the place, but there so expensive. After some investigating I found there not hard to make so I made 3 traditional pairs and 1 Nucci-fied pair. XD

Black Blue and pruple.

Sorry about the horrible picture.

Gold seed bead.
(blah picture.)
I basically created the shape out
of a hanger (My dad soldiered it or w/e), used gold wire to make the spirals
and thinner wire for wrapping addind seed beads on randomly.

So you like?
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Thread and pearl bangles. on: June 30, 2009 01:39:05 PM
 This is my first post here!

Last night I was bored so I decided to make something. I took some old bangles painted them black and then whipped out my supplies. The first one I simply wrapped some embroidery thread around( and around and around). The second one I rook some black 22 gauge wire and a bunch of different plastic pearls and wrapped (and wrapped and wrapped) Sorry about the pictures, it was 3am and all I had was a nightlight.

(ignore the orange ring)


C&C appreciated.
