Choose proper wire gauge

2011-11-23

Gauge is a technical term used to describe the thickness of the wire, the lower the gauge number, the thicker the wire will be. Jewelry wire from jewelry supplies stores comes in many different thicknesses, such as 14 gauge, 16 gauge, 18gauge… and 28 gauge. The following post will teach you what wire gauge for what design.
1 Choose 26 to 28 gauge wire to make wired crochet and wired weaving creations where a very thin and flexible wire is necessary. These wire gauges can also be used to make wrapped wire creations.
2 Select 22 to 24 gauge wire for making wrapped wire creations. 24 gauge wire is the standard gauge of most ready-made eye pins and head pins. These wire gauges are also used for semi-precious beads that typically have slightly smaller holes.
3 Use 20 gauge wire in all of the same applications as the 18 gauge wire. In addition to these uses, earring wires are typically made from 20 gauge wire.
4 Choose 18 gauge wire to make typical jump rings, clasps, head pins, and eye pins. This gauge wire is commonly used for making wire wraps and is a good choice for jewelry making because it will fit through most bead holes.
5 Use 14 or 16 gauge wire to make thicker-than-average jump rings and clasps. You can also make eye pins and head pins used for beads with larger holes.

Handmade Christmas themed Lampwork beads and pendants

2011-11-22

Seeing Zacoo’s new arrival for November which are all Lampworks and Christmas, I quickly dream up project inspiration ideas in my mind. Beads or pendants in solid as well as mixed fancy Christmas colors all have a lovely and fairy style: naivety snowman, playful Santa Clause, juicy candies, warm gloves, greenish wreath and Christmas trees…
Surly, the 20 to 30 millimeter pendants are just the size to use as a focal pendants or beads for any of the art project. Besides, they are easy to make by going through leather cords or silk threads.
To use them as pendants or beads to decorate a Christmas themed bold chain bracelets is also joyful. These little staffs must add adorable sense to your art piece.
Last not the least, a more creative and untraditional way of use them as ornaments for your Christmas trees.
Can you imagine your Christmas trees hanging with handmade glass Lampwork beads instead of factory mass produced PVC or terylene goods? It will definitely draw and won your guests’ applauds and recognition. It wouldn’t an one-sight glance but a long time appreciation.

Moreover, when the Christmas is over, they can recycle and reuse for other decoration or art project. It’s really an environmental-friendly goods that worth you to buy.

Cameo and cameo jewelry

2011-11-15

Cameo jewelry is a type of jewelry, most commonly also called cameo. You can find beautiful cameos all over the world, and they may have been constructed many different stylish, but it’s fair to state that cameo is a type of jewelry that has never fallen out of fashion.

Over time craftsmanship in making cameo advanced in numerous directions. At old times, cameo is usually made by shell, stones, well now, many other manmade materials are also be used to create beautiful cameo concluding glass, acrylic, resin

At my cameo cabochons section you can find 329 cameos themed with animal, boby organ, character, flowers, holiday, religious, skull, hearts and loves. Hunt your cameo at here.
Cabochon settings have the same value as cameos, for they hold cameos. So you may also like:

Cameo making method

2011-11-11

The shell and coral carving center of Torre Del Greco uses a method thousands of years old. The use of steel gravers with handles, fitting the hand, are used in a timeless tradition of master craftsmanship. The master carver will select the shell to be used, outline the number of cameos to be obtained from that shell, and then supervise the entire carving process. With these incredibly sharp precision tools, the most intricate details can be obtained. No matter what profile or scene you choose, it is sure to be an “INVESTMENT” that will be cherished.
The other great carving center of the world is Idar-Oberstein, Germany. This is a city that is just as famous for their gemstone and agate carvings as Torre Del Greco is for their shell carvings. This type of carving seems to be much more difficult because of the hardness of gemstones and agates.
Let me explain further: The cameos are created from pieces of high quality white agate found only in this region. The agate is first dyed either black, red, green, or blue. Each piece is ultrasonically carved by computer, using a template from the original hand carved work of art. The color is then chemically drawn back out of the face of the stone, thus leaving the face in its original white condition. The finished piece is very resistant to chipping and will not peel, crack, fade, or discolor with age. This explains why agate cameos have turned out to be such an “INVESTMENT” to be handed down from generation to generation.
