2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Tutorial for beaded cuff-similar to cockatiels on: March 25, 2005 03:25:19 AM
ok here is a tutorial for beaded cuffs similar to ones buy cockatiel in her post- 7 new projects.

so just make a curved shape with wire add your beads on and make loops at both ends.
make about 10 of these(more or less depending on your preferences)

Then you want to place each one on top of each other and join them together.
Ok i can't work out how to show you this with pictures but all you need to do is

1. place them on top of each other.

2. you need to join them up at three separate points. so starting at the topmost coil wrap wire in and out of each coil working your way down to the bottom.

3. then work the wire back up again.

4. then do that again twice more at separate points of the bracelet.

5. if the bracelet seems a bit unstable you mihgt want to add more connecting bits in.

6. the finished product.

i hope the links to the pics work. i hope this isnt too confusing. please comment and tell me if  its a good tutorial.

5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Exploding designs. on: April 12, 2004 01:32:36 PM
hi i was just wondering how you make a design of something exploding. On a post about embelished totes,  kaleidoscope_eyes  said how they had made a bag with a design of an exploding dog on it. and i've seen exploding mickey mouse designs.
how would you draw it out and applique it onto a bag?
6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Different Bag Handles on: April 09, 2004 02:47:56 AM
Hi i was just thinking of some different items and materials you could use as bag handles:

feather boas
old belt
braided ribbon
braided material, maybe matching the bag body.
chain-coloured maybe
old seat belts-pick them up from a flea market or junk store.
old ties
guitar straps
rope-braided maybe
silk scarves
plastic tubing.

with the plastic tubing you could fill it with lots of different things for an alternative look.you could fill it with:
sweets like skittles, smarties, m+m's..etc
or you could string things throught the tubing, like:

sorry i did go on a bit, my mind got carried away.
hope that helps
