No-solder Riveted Bail Gemstone Donut Necklace DIY PDF Digital Tutorial

This necklace is a simple and striking way to display a large gemstone donut. Using only “cold connections” like rivets, staple and crimps we will make a unique sterling silver two-piece riveted bail, with a hand stamped design. The silver bail can be customized by using different stamps or texture hammers on the metal. Changing the shape of the cutouts along the edge for other shapes as triangles or ovals, can also make each pendant unique.

4 Bails For Large Gemstone Donuts DIY PDF Digital Tutorial

Here are four striking bails using the same design principle to accommodate your large gemstone donuts. The design is simple with only one soldered joint, making it a good project for beginner solders. The bails can be used for rectangular, square or round donuts. Three of the bails are soldered pieces and one a no-solder project. The bails can be made in sterling silver, copper, brass or bronze. You can customize the design further, by using your own stamps or texture hammers on the metal. The tubes at the back of the bails are big enough to accommodate most chains, large gauge neck wires, multi-strand cable necklaces or smaller bead necklaces. They can also be used in conjunction with silk cords, ribbons, beaded Kumihimo cords or larger bead strands. Go look for those forgotten large gemstone donuts in your bead boxes and make some awesome pendants today!

Twig Circles Stud Earrings with Foldformed Leaves DIY PDF Digital tutorial

I wanted a pair of stud earrings that where small enough to have some type of metal or beaded dangles. One of the ideas I had, was making some small “organic” element without having to cast from “live” plants. Experimenting to make these “twigs” was fun, and opened a whole new set of ideas to try out. Like using the “twigs” with foldformed copper leaves dangles. The metal leaves could be enameled or treated with colored patinas. The twig circles can also be used with lampwork drops, head pins with or without threaded beads. So if you have off-mandrel drops or glass head pins this is the project for you!

Shaped Silver Pendant And Earrings DIY Tutorial

Foldforming is a technique that lets you turn a flat sheet of metal into a three dimensional object. This way of manipulating sheet metal can also add a lot of texture to it. In this tutorial we will fold a piece of metal sheet many times to give it a eye catching texture. We will add to this texture with stamped designs intermixed with the folds. Once finished with the textured metal sheet we will cut out and shape a pair of round cabochons and a tear-shaped one. The cabochons will then be framed in sterling silver using a combination bezel-tab setting for a spectacular set of earrings and pendant. The step-by-step instructions includes how to apply and preserve colored patinas for a different look on the copper cabochons. This tutorial is an instant downloading PDF file. It has 16 pages, 54 photos and life size template of all the components. For intermediate skill students.
