Little Slice of Heaven Bracelet Tutorial
Any other day, this fruit slice stamp might be a lime, orange or grapefruit ... but today, it's TANGERINE!
Created by: Janet Boyington
String crystals, mother-of-pearl beads, and sterling Bali-style flower spacer beads in desired pattern on the Soft Flex beading wire (see Jewelry Basics below). Add a crimp and wire guard to each end, and before crimping, add a split ring to one end, and a lobster clasp to the other end (on the wire guards).
Stamp fruit slice on sterling round blank, and antique with enamel maker (per package instructions) to bring out the pattern. (New to metal stamping? See Metal Stamping 101 below.)
Wait about 2 minutes for the stamp enamel to fully dry, and then polish charm to a high shine with an ULTRA polish pad.
Use a 5mm jump ring to attach fruit slice charm and Swarovski tangerine navette charm to the same wire guard as the clasp.
One or more parts (or tools) used in this project are no longer available, so we've moved the whole project into the "Misc Jewelry Tutorials with Issues" area while we decide what we want to do about it: find a good sub, re-make this project, or retire the tutorial.
