Wrapping Briollettes

I’ve decided to give beading a little break in the next couple of weeks as I try to make more effort in preparing my wedding. I usually try to add new designs every week, so after this week I will only list new things whenever it comes along. Custom orders and the shop will still be stocked.

I’ve planned to combine my drawing and computer skills together to create pictures and logos for the wedding. I still need a lot of practice so it will be my priority to do so until I get most of my designs planned and finished.

Though, during Easter weekend, I procrastinate on that idea and ended up beading anyway. I often see beaders in Etsy wire wrap their briolette around and around the top to create some sort of a cap. It looks so nice I want to try making some as well-except I couldn’t find any tutorials on it.

So after a couple of hours playing with wire, trying different techniques until I found one that worked well for me, I finally came to a technique that would give a perfect result. The next day I went to the market to get some Swarovski briolettes (more than I should, as usual), came home and started making jewelry all day. I fell asleep unconsciously in the evening because I was so exhausted – but that's a different story that I will share in a future post.

Enjoy! =)
