Frequently Bought Together:

     Basic Loops         The loop size will depend on how much wire you leave past the  end of your beads, and around which part of your pliers you bend  the loop. A good loop size is usually about 1/3 of the way from the  tip of your pliers, with about 8mm of wire.    Use round needle-nose pliers.    If using an eye pin, decide which way you want the loop to go -  the same direction as the premade loop on the other end, or  90º off. Keep this direction in mind as you bend the rest of  the wire.    Cut off any excess wire (we suggest retaining 8mm above the top  of your beads).    Grip the pin just above the top bead (at the arrow above), and  bend the wire sharply toward you.    Grasp the tip of the wire with pliers, and bend smoothly away  from you, around the pliers.               Wrapped Loops       Use chain-nose pliers to grasp the wire just above the top of  the bead.    Use your fingers to bend the wire sharply over the top of the  pliers, at a 90° angle. You should have 2-3mm of straight wire  between the bead and the bend.    Use round-nose pliers to grasp a spot just above the bend, and  use your fingers to smoothly bend the wire all the way around the  tip of the pliers.    Now use pliers to grasp the wire firmly across the loop. Use  your fingers or chain-nose pliers to carefully wrap the wire around  the stem. For best control, experts recommend you break this step  into a series of half wraps.    Trim excess with flush cutters.

Acetate looks similar to Lucite (acrylic resin), but this form of plastic actually begins with acetic acid (also known as household vinegar), combined with various bases to give it the desired colors and texture. It's strong, lightweight, slightly flexible, and remarkably hypoallergenic. This combination makes it popular for eyeglass frames as well as jewelry.

Amazonite is a relatively rare blue-green variety of microcline (a feldspar mineral) used as a semiprecious stone. This opaque stone has a silky luster or silvery sheen and is often found with white, yellow or gray inclusions. Amazonite, sometimes called Amazon stone, is believed to have many healing characteristics, including improving your skin, marriage, clarity of thought, and social interaction. It is also credited with alleviating muscle spasms, stress, and exhaustion. Even when polished, amazonite beads maintain a somewhat raw, natural texture that makes this pale blue-green stone even more appealing to many people.
