Pandora Enamel Silver Houses Red Charm 055

 

Jewelry Making

After I became serious about making Pandora Enamel Silver Houses Red Charm 055 jewelry, I decided I wanted to learn how to do more than stick a bead on a head pin, so I enrolled in a vocational school where they had a five month course in jewelry making. (I took it twice.) The course was designed around a number of projects which we were required to do in a specific order. Our very first Pandora Enamel Silver Houses Red Charm 055 project was to make a jig and then use it to make a wire bracelet. Though there are a number of commercially made jigs on the market today, it very easy to make your own.

To make a jig like mine, you need:

three nails (I used size 1d "eight penny")screw driver1. Using the , find the center of the block the of wood.

2. Now use the and to mark a vertical line down the center of the clock. Then mark horizontally so that you created a plus sign on the block.

3. Measure up 1.5" from the center and in one nail.

4. Measure up 1" form the center and over to the left of the center.25" and in another nail.

5. Measure up 1" form the center and over to the right of the center.25" and in another nail. You should have about .5" in Pandora Murano Glass Bead 016 between each nail and they form a triangle.

6. Now, use the hack saw to cut off the nail heads. File the tops down a little until the nails are smooth and won cut your fingers as you use the jig.

7. Finally, drill a small hole in the very middle of Pandora Enamel Silver Houses Red Charm 055 the block and thomas sabo braclets screw in the Pandora Enamel Silver Houses Red Charm 055 screw. You can also use a larger nail instead of screw. This is just to anchor the wire and isn a requirement. But, it does come in handy.

Now, Pandora Flower Bead Rose Gold you have a jig. Thought his creates a triangle on the block, you can use this same method to create any number of designs. Of course, the disadvantage of a jig like this is that you can move the nails around as with the pegs on one of today commercially available jigs. However, this is a quick, inexpensive alternative. Plus, if you find you like using jigs for your wire work, then you may feel more comfortable investing in a jig package.
