Earrings “Monogram” of wire and stones

Earrings “Monogram” of wire and stones



We need:
– copper wire two diameters of 1.5 mm and 1 mm for the basic elements, and 0.4 mm for the winding
– a variety of beads (I use natural stones – quartz, lapis lazuli, jade)
– Round
– tonkogubtsy bent
– wire cutters (cutter)
– hammer and anvil (I have two hammer – large and small)
– ammonia (ammonia)
– a container with a tight fitting lid and another smaller one (such as the cap on deodorant)
– Steel wool
– a good mood =))


Draw a sketch of the future earrings.


Take the wire cross section of 1.5 mm and start from it to do the basic element of the biggest earrings. Gently slowly with the help of pliers do curls and smooth curves and sharp bends tonkogubtsami and sharp corners.


Next section of wire 1mm smaller elements do, mostly working pliers


Once all the elements are ready to try on and choose the needed beads.


Using hammers repel the wire so that it becomes flat and beautiful curls


Again are putting to sketch, check to see if the curves of our beautiful


Take the wire section of 0.4 mm and begin to fix our beads on the main and largest parts of future earrings. Try to wire through each bead to pass on at least two times.


Thus we fix all the beads.


Next, begin to be attached to the main elements of the smaller details, for this we use all the same wire cross section of 0.4 mm.


We get here are blanks for earrings.


Next we need to wear out of – zapatinirovat. To do this, we need the ammonia container with a tight fitting lid and cap.


Pour a small amount of ammonia in the cap, put it in our container, next put our future earrings (soak them in ammonia or any other liquid is not needed) and a tight-fitting lid on the container.


Leave in this state for 15-30 minutes, occasionally glancing acquire what color earrings. If the color you like, we can get the blank out of the container.

That is such after 30 minutes spent in the company of ammonia to get our billet, take a metal wool and clean our billet doctoring patina and convex parts, and it will remain in the pits.


Here clearly the difference between the work piece, which I have already cleaned and not yet treated (treated left, right – no).


And here they were both neat 


Our earrings are ready! You can wear and forth to conquer the world! 19
