2444  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / using surgical steel for earings PIC LINK WORKING 5/8/05 on: July 27, 2005 11:24:14 AM
Hi I am allergic to cheap wires so I have started making some earings from scratch myself using surgical steel. I found it in a fishing supply store. Very sharp when cut so i used a metal file to file ends. I am pleased with first attempt. will post others as soon as take more pics. any feedback on using surgical steel? I want to solder a little dob on the end to keep beads on has anyone done that?   


hope link to pic works. sometimes if yahoos pics bandwidth is over limit it only refreshes at the start of the next hour, sorry but i couldnt upload the other way as too big, got to learn to compress pics. cheers cyndi
2445  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Jewellery I have made with amethyst chips on: July 27, 2005 10:49:05 AM
Thanks for your comments. The bracelets are made with memory wire and are thus easily multifit which make them great for gifts. I made the one with the darker amethyst chips for myself than got a strand of amethyst chips for the other to make the set of 3 for my best friend's birthday. I have learnt since that their is first  grade and second grade amethyst chips so thats why the second ones colour isn't as dark. I have made a pinkquartz one but it got snapped up by my daughters friend before i thought to take a pic, and i have 2 more I am working on. The memory wire is very hard to cut and bend, does anyone have any tips for this? cheers cyndi  Grin Smiley Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Kiss Cheesy Smiley

Hi I have made some fringed purses and its simple to just stitch a few lines up and down a long strip than fringe it and attach looks nice.
Also try using thicker guage wire and bend to make a handle, add some beads for a cool trendy look.
Handles can be made from white nylon rope which can be shaped into circles and heat ends with lighter (please be careful i dont take any responsibility at your own risk etc etc) and join, than wrap fabric around can using wadding to make thicker.
Other than that make out of fabric or buy thicker ribbon etc to make them for totes. Hope these help.
goodluck , cyndi
