Basics

 

STRINGING

Wirelace Basics pix 1
Twist end of WireLace® and add G-S Hypo Cement on the tip. Trim at an angle and string through beads.
Hold 4mm crystals in place on 1mm WireLace® by applying G-S Hypo Cement and sliding 4mm crystals over glue.
String beads on wire inside WireLace® or wrap between chain and secure with an overhand knot.
SUPPORTING
Tip2Tip3tip4
To keep the lacy waves from stretching out or to string beads inside
WireLace® tube, use a large metal yarn needle available at most crafts
stores. Insert a wire into the WireLace™ tube to create shapes and armatures.
FINISHING
TIP5Tip6 tip7
When finishing WireLace you have several options. You can wrap the ends with
wire and insert into a clamshell endcap, or tie off WireLace® on a eye-pin and
insert into a cone end, or you can choose to use a bead to finish the end.
TIP7 TIP8 TIP9
Bell endcaps make an elegant ending. Simply epoxy onto the end. You can also
use an overhand knot on a jump ring to connect to a clasp, and you can also use
polymer clay to bake endcaps or beads directly onto WireLace.
