Make Braided Bracelets

The first thing that you should do is to cut three strands of the material that you want to make a bracelet from. The material can be a yarn, thread, leather or shoestring. For ideal results you should ensure that the strands are of different colors that look good together. For example, you can choose red, white and yellow.

You should tie the strands together by tying a knot at the top of the strand while leaving a one inch of material above the knot.

For you to easily braid the bracelets, you should ensure that the strands are long enough. To anchor the bracelet, you should tape the short loose ends of the strands to the tabletop. You can also tape the loose ends to the edge of a desk.

You should then braid the bracelet by separating the strands into three groups: left, right, and center. You should move the right strand over the middle strand and then the left strand over the right one. By doing this you will have moved the center strand to the right side. You should continue braiding until only an inch of strand is left.

After completing doing this you should tie …

Finding a Quality Jewelry

There is no getting away from the fact that jewelry is an asset and often an expensive one. This does not mean that it is not well-worth it, however, the outlay may be one that individuals have saved up for. Therefore, it is imperative that when you are purchasing an item that you are completely confident in the product itself and the establishment that you purchase it from. Getting this right is the key to ongoing success; a quality jeweller will offer a lifetime service as to whether it is repair, remodelling or further purchases.

Firstly, you are looking for reputation. This does not necessarily mean shopping from one of the larger, well-known stores. In fact, it is likely that you will receive a much-improved buyer experience from a smaller, local jeweller. However, their reputation will be visible through reviews of their shops online. Facebook, Google and website testimonials offer a great insight into reputation of a Company.

Secondly, it is important to make contact with the shop. It may be that you choose to visit the store or speak to them over the phone. Either way, all experiences of dealing with your chosen shop should be positive and helpful.…

Pewter Beads

Pewter is a metal alloy which is traditionally about 90% tin, with the remaining 10% consisting of a varied mixture of copper, antimony, bismuth and occasionally small amounts of silver. There are different standards worldwide as to what proportions these elements must be used in for the alloy to legally be classed as pewter. Pewter alloys in Europe traditionally use less tin than alloys in Asia, which means that pewter in Asia is slightly softer than pewter in Europe. Because pewter is so malleable, it can easily be formed in to things like pewter beads and pendants which can be used in jewelry making. As well as being used for these beads, is also now in use for many other decorative objects, such as collectable figurines and aircraft models. In some sporting contests, pewter medals are given to the fourth place finisher, behind the bronze medal winner.

The earliest pieces of pewter were found in a tomb in ancient Egypt, but they were not in the form of pewter beads. Evidence shows that the use of pewter became more common in the 12th century as craftspeople began to work with it more often to create jewelry and “fine” tableware. It …
