A Quicker Way

I'm always looking for a quicker way to do things.  But it's important that in doing so,...doing it quicker of course, that quality is not compromised.   I tend to pride myself on making tight gallery wraps, when making finished jewelry. I like to think of myself as a perfectionist...the DH calls me anal, with a capital A.  I don't want any part of the wire sticking out to catch on a favorite sweater, or to grab a strand of hair  (ouch!).  I'd rank the one below as a 6 on a scale of 1-10.  We'll blame the 6 on the fact that I was rushing to take this pic.  ;-)

So I was soooo pleased when just cruising the web I found the ultimate pendant maker.
Check these  out.... 

The loops on the left glue in to the top of your bead.  The loops on the right glue in to the bottom of your bead. These are made specifically for the  Pandora style large hole beads that lampworkers make (that of course, would be me!)This is what the finished product looks like after both pieces have been glued in.  It's recommended to use a 2  part epoxy.


Waaaay Cool! Imagine how quickly you can put a pendant together!  All you need is a fabulous bead, the top pendant loop, the bottom bead, some 5 minute epoxy...... and voila!  Instant pendant!!

On Monday, November 21, I'll have some of these in both colors in my shop.
There's a discount if you find this box in one of my listings! (Hint: check out the lampwork bead section   )
 

 The Discount Coupon Code is in that listing. Use it at checkout, and the discount will be automatically calculated.

And don't forget to check out my teamies on the PromoFrenzyTeam. Each of these fabulous artists is offering a special discount in their shops as well .   Shhhhhhh,,,,,,You didn't hear it from me...
 but  you'll find hints to find their coupon codes in their listings too! So stop by all their shops to see all the goodies and fabulous sales you can take advantage of!

  7. wow, interesting, I wonder though, how heavy can you make the beaded item, or is it guaranteed NOT to break?
