  • The bluish akoyas I recently wirewrapped without chain between the wraps just wouldn't stay nice. It twisted with just the wirewrapped pearls. It is very pretty but rewirewrapped it anyway ...this is the before.

    I added a chain between the wrapped pearls and used a 0.6mm wire instead. The previous were a bit delicate. I got a little bit longer though.

    • A very messy selfie that does not show the colors correctly.

      • Wow! I'm away from the P-G site for a couple days and arrive back to see all the glory of new creations! I'm loving the blue variations. The green pearl combo is also beautiful.

        I like the "messy" selfie! I was wearing three strands of small pearls yesterday, and my hubby commented on the "many" pearls. Haha! Clearly, he hasn't visited these great "show me" threads on P-G. It may be time for him to be properly pearl-educated.

            • Charlotta - I love how elegant your pearls look on your lovely neck. I am smitten by your greenish SS pearls.

              • Thank you SydK and Gemandpearllover. The greenish pearls are a favorite of mine to. I used the last of them in the vintage akoya strand. So 2 strands made a 20 inch strand, a tincup, a pair of earrings and ak addition to the vintage strand. I think I made 2 charms as well.
                SydK, well see how long I have the blue tincups. My mother loves blue, if she sees them I might have to give them to her. But I haven't seen her for some weeks. I had a cold and not-husband had fever twice and my father is having chemo, so we can't see them when either of us is having an infection. But the blues turned out really nice.

                  • What do husbands (and not husbands) know about pearls any way? Your layers are fabulous

                      Me, too/two! Are there any videos or recommended sites to learn wire wrapping? I haven't looked here on P-G yet, but will toddle off and do so, pronto.

                      • Thank you 86Corvettegirl, JerseyPearl and Cricketbug.
                        86Corvettegirl and Cricketbug, I learnt wirewrapping using books. Then I discovered that Wendy at Pearlescence has videos demonstrating how to wirewrap. Very helpful to look at, then you see how to hold your hands and how to use the tools. I would love to teach you, but sweden is a far away...

                          I'll go have a look at Wendy's video, then. Her video on stringing pearls was very helpful to me when I first started. Now, as to having you teach me how to wire wrap, it would be amazing to visit you (and Sweden) for personal tutorials! But yes, it is a long way from here.

                            • I had some semi-prescious briolettes on a necklace I didn't like. There were more briolettes but garish in color. I've had them for a year or so. So I got my wirewrapping books and learnt how to wirewrap briolettes. I had an idea about adding one or two on the shorter blue akoya tincup. But it didn't look good when I laid them besides the akoyas. Then I thought about arranging the stones into a rainbow and add one of the leftover blue akoyas fom Pearlescence between each stone. I really like how it turned out. Had to use very fine wire, 0,4mm, because the drillholes on the briolettes are tiny.
