WigJig Jewelry Tools Presents our Jewelry Making Newsletter for 5/09/2004

We are not always able to run our WigJig business, publish new designs, write a bi-weekly newsletter and attend bead shows demonstrating our products.  In general, we have not been able to find the time to demonstrate at shows.  The International Gem and Jewelry Show in Tuscon in February is one exception.  This May, we will make another exception.  Gary Helwig, the inventor of the WigJig will be demonstrating our WigJig products at the Bead and Button Show in Milwaukee, WI from Thursday evening May 20th through Sunday, May 23rd.  He will be in the Soft Flex Booth and Soft Flex will be selling our WigJig tools at the show.  If you are at the show, please stop by and say hello.


We update the jewelry supplies we have "On Sale" with every newsletter.  A small sample of the products we currently have for sale at a discount are shown below.  Please click on any of the text below the pictures to view our entire list of sale items.  Quantities are limited for these items so please shop early.  This sale will be effective through May 21, 2004.  



With every newsletter we provide a free jewelry making design from WigJig University to spur the creative juices.  This newsletter's free designs are the designs for Classic Pearl Beads Necklace and Bracelet shown at right.   You can find instructions for how to make the necklace and bracelet by selecting either the picture or the title at right.  This jewelry making project uses Soft Flex or Soft Touch bead stringing wire to hold the pearls and a clasp that is made with our WigJig jewelry tools using 18G wire.

Past Jewelry Making Techniques:

We maintain a jewelry making techniques web page that provides links to the discussion of techniques in our prior newsletters.  You can visit this web page here.  Follow the links on that page to the discussion of the technique in that newsletter.  You will need to scroll down to view the techniques section in each prior newsletter. 

Jewelry Making Technique:

This weeks jewelry making technique is the technique for knitting wire using a Spool Knitter.  The Spool Knitter is a jewelry making tool with several metal pegs, a hole in the center, and a stylus.  The wire chain that results can be made in a loose knit like the one shown below, left, or in a tight knit like the chain shown below, right.  Please select either the picture or the title at right to view our new instructions on how to knit wire with a spool knitter.  The spool knitter shown at right includes the rubber grip accessory.
