1  How to get a necklace to lie flat? in Beads: Discussion and Questions by LuoLiu on: July 05, 2006 07:43:19 PM
I am just a beginner at wire/bead jewelry but I am really excited about it so far.
So, I made this necklace and I like how it looks but it doesn't always lie flat on my skin when I wear it. It tends to twist around so that some parts are sticking out, as you can probably imagine.
Does anyone have advice on how to make it so that it will lie flat?
I would really appreciate anyone's experience with this.

Also with this type of necklace, what else could you hang it on? I just put it on naked beading wire since that's what I had. I guess a chain might be nice. Are there other options I may not know about?

My Dangly mommy and baby are done! It was not easy for me to adapt the pattern to make the smaller one. That's why his arms are so fat. But he's cute nonetheless. They are for my friend's daughter, I don't know how I'm going to part with them!

I had to try this too, I'm a fan of any way to use i-cord!
I decided to try it with smaller beads though, and since I didn't have that many I didn't put them all the way around.
I'm not quite sure how I feel about it. I'll have to try wearing it and see how it feels. What do you all think?

This is my first project with wire and beads, and I am hooked. It's so fun to play with the shapes you can make with wire.
One problem I had - when working with the thicker wire for the frame of the bracelet I found it very difficult to keep it straight and in a perfect curve. While I was wrapping the thinner wire I kept bending the thicker one by accident. So you can see my bracelet is a little wobbly. Does anyone have any tips on keeping the wire straight and even??

Anyways, here's my bracelet:

Mine are nothing as good as Mary Bell's. I had a very hard time attaching the legs, and I ended up just fudging it with hot glue so the undersides of their bellies look like a mess. Mary Bell if you have any advice on assembling these little guys, I would be very grateful!
Here are mine:

My Kate is done too! Actually I'm not crazy about her white skin/fur, if I were to do it over I would have chosen a nice yellow or tan or something. Anyways, here she is!

Relaxing after a long day at work.

She was too short to reach the flowers so she learned how to climb a tree!
Doesn't she look so pretty?

A flamingo caravan - she wouldn't tell me where she was headed though...

Mine's pretty bright too, this red was the smallest yarn I had so there wasn't much choice. I had the same exact problem with the back of mine being too loose and had posted about that earlier. The back still looks funny if you look closely but when its hanging on my body no one's looking that close anyways. People ask me what the point of it is but besides being super cool, my headphone wires never get tangled anymore!Here is my headphone sleeve together with my matching iPod sock!

My Mr. Dangly is so cute and I'm so proud of him! He's not perfect, that's for sure, but he's the first toy I've knitted! I even made him a little blue vest, also the first vest I knitted. Thanks for sharing the pattern and everyone else's Mr. Danglies. Now see what he's been up to since he was born a few days ago...

He went online to do a little research on his family tree.

He tickled the ivories for a while in his stylish blue vest.

And he made mischief in my bureau drawer.
