Tuesday Tips and Tricks!

tuesdaytipsandtricks-520x210I can be a little indecisive when it comes to jewelry designs. For a stringing project I might change the order or even type of beads I use 3-4 times before I find a pattern I like. Beading boards are an excellent way to see what a necklace or bracelet looks like without stringing your beads. But for memory wire bracelets I find myself stuck stringing most or all of my beads to see what they look like with the coils stacked.
To make this design process as painless as possible, I keep both ends of my memory wire coil free to add or take away beads. And I use plastic earring backs to prevent my beads from accidentally slipping off while I work! These earring backs are easy to take on and off, keeping design changes a little bit easier until you’re ready to finish it permanently!
