Confetti Cuff


About this design:

Did a bit of experimenting on this cuff. It is another one with the cross wires weaving through the vertical wires I left a few more open spots, wrapped some of the wires and did little areas of weaving. The outline is a bit more irregular.

Components:

various stones, coral, turquoise, pearls

    I love the twists and turns in your weaving…kind of like life with twists and turns with beautiful beads along the way. :)

    I’m SO impressed with your skill! You make it look easy and I know it’s not!
    Please help: What gauge wire do you use for the wave/curve cuff? And what gauge wire do you use for the weaving and beadwork? I’ve noticed several of your pieces and I would like to try…

    Hey Everyone thanks for all of the comments and compliments.

    J Shane, I do use several gauges of wire. For the cuffs like the one pictured here the frame is made with either 12ga or 14ga wire which every I happen to handy. I do prefer the 12ga though. For the wire wave frame I use the same two gauges, 12 or 14 and some times 16ga depending on how high the waves go. The beads are strung on 24ga wire. It is flexible enough to wrap around the heavier wires but strong enough to not break easily. I use it for the fine weaving too.

    I posted a tutorial here on the Lima Bead site. It is for a variation of the cuff that doesn’t have the heavy horizontal wires woven through the vertical wires. Check out the step-by-step projects. You’ll need to scroll down quite a way but it is there.

    If you have any more questions please don’t hesitate to ask.

    I added pictures showing more variations of the frame. It has endless possibilities.

    Well rats. I posted three different views of the same cuff.

    This is the other picture I had intended to post. Is is of a wilder variation. :D
