WigJig Jewelry Tools Presents our Jewelry Making Newsletter for May 11, 2003

We are continuing to improve our newsletter, so please feel free to provide feedback at info@wigjig.com.

We contributed $1 for every order received from April 15 through the end of the month to the Navy Marine Corps Relief Society.  A special thank you to all customers who placed orders during this time frame! 

NEW JEWELRY MAKING TOOL:

We have just developed a new hand tool specifically designed to work with our WigJig tools.  It is a pair of step jaw pliers like the ones shown at right.  The unique feature of these pliers is the fact that the first step in the pliers is designed to be exactly the size of a peg for our WigJig Delphi or Cyclops and the second step in the pliers is the size of a peg for the Olympus, Olympus-Lite or Electra.  Because of the flat jaw opposite the stepped jaw, these pliers do not mark the outside of any loop made.  We really like these pliers and use them extensively.  They won't completely replace round nose pliers, but they are very, very handy.  These pliers are currently on sale at 15% off.

FREE JEWELRY MAKING DESIGN:
With every newsletter we provide a free design from WigJig University to spur the creative juices.  This newsletter's free design is the Wrapped Link Bracelet shown at right.  These bracelets are made of the "wrapped link" (shown upper right) connected to one another by wrapped bead links.  The "wrapped link" is made of 20 G 1/2 hard wire and is made using an approach that is very similar to the wrapped bead link without the bead.  The Wrapped Link Bracelets have a look and feel similar to Bali-Style, but unlike Bali-Style can be made in either gold-filled or sterling silver.  The bracelets shown at right use either Swarovski 6mm Violet Cubes or Swarovski 6mm Tahitian style Crystal Pearls.  I used a gold-filled magnetic clasp with each and a  guard chain made of fine chain.    These bracelets take about 30 to 45 minutes to complete.  Instructions are provided here detailing how to make this bracelet using our WigJig jewelry tools, jewelry wire and beads or by clicking on the pictures at right.

Jewelry Making Technique of the week:
Our WigJig University wire-working technique for this newsletter is how to make a spiral using the WigJig Spiral Maker.  Making a spiral is a basic skill and will assist us in some more advanced projects.  In the next newsletter, we will show one more advanced project -- how to use two spirals together to make a "cage".  Follow our link to instructions on how to make a spiral by selecting either the picture or the text on the right.
