Do you want to add some new pieces of jewelry to your collection? With just a little bit of practice and skill, you can make your own jewelry at home with wire.
If you’re new to wire work, this is a easy technique that you can use to create some beautiful pieces of jewelry and accessories. It really is amazing what you make with a little wire, a few beads and some basic jewelry making tools!
Use appropriate wire thickness.
I make jewelry of wire 1 mm (18 ga) wire for the frames and 0.4 mm (26 ga) thick wire for the weaving.
You can use wire with a thickness of 0.8 mm (20 ga) wire for the frames and 0.3 mm (28 ga) wire for the weaving.
You’ll Need Jewelry Making Pliers.
1) Flat Nose Pliers
2) Wire Cutters
3) Optional Round Nose Pliers
Use Flat nose pliers with plastic/nylon jaws to clamp the weaving wire.
Once you know how to achieve the basic weaves, you can do so much with wire work. It is really simple when you know how.
I used 1 mm wire for the frames and 0.4 mm wire for the weaving as this helps to keep the weaving neat.
For my jewelry I use only natural wire (copper, nickel silver, bronze, brass, silver). I patinate jewelry from wire with special solutions and polish with felt circles using polishing pastes. Sometimes, so that the wire does not darken over time, I coat the metal with a special varnish.
All jewelry I make made from natural stones with my own hands for you with love.
