Inspired by You

by: Rae Huggins

Many ladies come into the store with their ideas and they sometimes need our assistance to bring those ideas to life. There is so much creativity going on at Beadfx that I felt inspired to make a bracelet. So ladies -  this was "Inspired By You."

An idea popped into my head and I was going to use 26ga Sterling Silver DS wire to make a Viking Knit bracelet. I was also going to make lampwork beads with holes big enough to fit the bracelet. But I wanted a quick fix – I felt lazy and did not want to do all that work!

But then I remembered that we carry knitted wire in the store and stone beads that I always wanted to buy but never did. All I did was cut 6”(15.24cm) of the wire and string the stone beads, 8 mm Bighole Dots and Bighole Donuts onto the Silver Silk knitted wire (see picture). The Silicone Filled beads were placed on both ends because I wanted to keep the beads in place.

To attach the Knit Wire End Cap insert the end of the knitted wire into the space and close gently with your pliers. Repeat on the opposite end. Finally add the Multi Toggle and by the time the next commercial ends you’ll be wearing your bracelet!
