Finishing School

Judy Langone and her helpers did a wonderful job teaching the Crystal Delight Bracelet at the July meeting. Thank you, Judy for sharing the bracelet with our members.

Our August project is almost everything you've ever wanted to know about finishing necklaces and bracelets. This is your opportunity to finish your UFO's by learning how to:

Add a thread into your finished piece and make your own toggle. (We will provide I pins for the toggle.)

Crimp flexible wire (Softflex, Beadalon) using spring rings, lobster claws, metal toggles.

Use wire guards. (We will provide the wire guards.)

Create button and loop closures.

Bring your unfinished pieces to the next meeting and learn how to attach a purchased clasp or make your own loop and toggle closures.

Clasps

Crimps

6 pound Fireline

Size 12 Needles
