Welcome to Bead Table Wednesday! Today I shared how to make these textured wire frames for your art beads.
Watch the video below:
Resources from the video:
14 or 16 gauge copper wire for the frame - local hardware store
18 gauge copper wire for the beads
Enamel Leafs: Gardanne Beads (trunk show on Saturday & Sunday)
Bead & Button Show - I'll be in booth 1208
What an absolute joy to log on to my computer after being out of action for so long, to discover your fantastic video. What an absolute joy! Have a brilliant time at the show!
Thank you for this tutorial. This is my first attempt at anything to do with copper wire. I bought 16 gauge copper wire as recommended but my frame was very narrow and very thin (about 1/8th of an inch wide) and I struggled to punch a 1.5mm hole in the ends as it was so narrow and not at all like yours. The diameter of the wire was 1.25mm before hammering. Am I doing something wron? I would love to get this right it is such a lovely piece.
Hi Heather - do you wax your patinaed metals? if so, what do you use/recommend?
