Memory Wire Shears.
Bead Bumpers? Any time you're using thick wire, adding a Bead Bumper is a quick and clean way to hold your beads in place. They may be small, but they are mighty! I also love how Wyatt curved the spokes (try the Bracelet Bending Pliers to do this) and glued the beads onto the end of the Wire Form to finish off the design.
Even though Halloween in behind us, there's always room for something spooky to tuck in a dark corner. I'll definitely pull this project that Shelley Penney and I demonstrated on Facebook Live out again next October! I love how the Wire Form is the perfect frame for a spiderweb. My favorite finishing technique is to use Bead Fix Gel to glue Memory Wire End Caps onto the ends of the spokes. Can you guess what the component part is with the loop that I used to hang the chain from the top and the spider from the bottom? You can find the answer here!
We've just scratched the surface of the design possibilities for the Wire Forms. What have you made with them? Be sure to post your creations in the Jewelry Making with Beadalon Facebook Group, and on your socials use #beadalon so we can see what you make!
Until next time, happy beading!
