I love reading about a small beading business. The success depends on the ability to work hard and multi-task. Your web site is indicative of your enthusiasm for beading.

I wanted to make a necklace, wide bracelet, and earrings set that would resemble something you'd see in a pageant or on the red carpet. Is there a tutorial?

Pearl Blay said...

There are many tutorials out there so it will depend what you like and what sort of technique you can do - wire work, beadwork etc.

One suggestion is for you to search my blog for "statement" jewelry tutorials. These are worthy of the red carpet! Just go to the top right of my blog and type in the search box "statement tutorial". Have fun checking them out. There are tons! said...

Hi, I like the way you made your copper ear wires, but, I am having a hard time finding "copper colored" wire that would work. I was told I needed half hard ,so , the ear wire will keep its shape. Can you help? I need to make a lot of pairs . Thank you, Denise

Hi Denise,

Copper is generally a soft metal. So if you wish to make earring wires with this metal you need to work harden them so they retain their shape. After forming the copper ear wires, place them on a steel block and hammer a few times with a nylon hammer. Hope this helps!!
