chain mail designs
Make one tonight!

From the editor
I love working with wire. I love the fact that a plain piece of wire can be twisted, textured, and turned into beautiful jewelry. I love that it can be made into jump rings to make chain. I love that it can be coiled, and the coils turned into beads, and the beads used in a piece of jewelry. I love that you can use it to make clasps and closures, earring wires, and so much more. I just love working with wire. And that love of all things wire is why I had so much fun putting together this annual, Wirework 2010. The idea has been percolating for more than a year, but we actively went looking for submissions around June of 2009. My first stop? The Meet the Teachers Reception at the Bead&Button show. What better place could there be to find teachers with the right skills, who could not only provide me with fabulous finished jewelry pieces, but could also supply the instructions to go with them? What I found was exactly what I was hoping for ... projects of various skill levels and techniques. So if you're interested in chain, we have it. Wrapped loops? We have projects that use those, too. If you want to learn to shape wire into pendants, components, or more, we've got you covered. And if you're new to wireworking, our Basics section on page 8 contains information about tools and techniques. We also included information about making your own jump rings, plus a gauge and size chart for jump rings. Then, of course, there's information about wire, in case you have questions about gauge, hardness, and shapes. When I first started making jewelry, I knew nothing about wire, so information like that was very important to me. And now that I can make my own jump rings, I feel so empowered! My weakness in jewelry-making is chain mail. Though I started making strung jewelry, I had the opportunity to take some classes early in my jewelry-making journey, and Anne Mitchell's queens and Byzantine chain class was my first chain mail class. I make an effort to snag a few minutes with her at shows during the year, but those visits are usually brief and mostly business. So it was fun to have the opportunity to catch up with her for the article on page 16 and make her bracelet on page 20. In fact, I thoroughly enjoyed making all of the projects in this issue. That's right, we tested every project in this issue to make sure that the instructions were clear and accurate. We photographed the steps along the way so you can see what your piece should look like at each step. We feel that having the photos accompany the instructions makes these projects easy for anyone, regardless of your skill level. And the best way to improve your skill level is to make projects, so what are you waiting for? Let's get started!

Wirework 2010

Basics
GUIDE TO WIRE ,HARDNESS • SHAPE • GAUGE
Wire comes in a variety of materials and finishes, including brass, gold, gold-filled, gold-plated, fine silver, sterling silver, silver-plated, German wire (sterling over a copper core), anodized niobium (ohemically colored wire), copper, and color-coated copper (craft wire). Brass, copper, and craft wire are packaged in 10-40-yd. (9-37 m) spools, while gold, silver, and niobium are sold by the foot or ounce. Practice your wireworking skills using brass or copper, which are soft, easy to manipulate, and inexpensive.

~ shape

Wire is available in many different shapes (below), but the most common are round, half-round, square, triangle, and twisted. Each of these shapes is available in a range of gauges.

use either half-hard or dead-soft, Most standard head pins and earring wires are made in 20- or 22-gauge wire, 24- and 26-gauge wires are considered ultraflne. Use these with small pearls and gemstones as well as for decorative wire wrapping, wire crochet, and beaded flowers, 28-gauge and thinner wires are excellent for crochet, beaded flowers, twining, and other delicate applications. Some pearls and gemstones with tiny holes may require these gauges as well.

hardness
Hardness describes wire's temper or malleability. When you work with sterling silver wire, you have a choice between two categories of hardness: dead-soft and half-hard. Dead-soft wire is easy to bend with your fingers. Half-hard wire is slightly stiffer, so it holds its shape well. Any wire will harden as you work with it, but for more rigidity, you can hammer it on a steel block or anvil. Hammering will flatten the wire's shape.

1 To make the base wire, hammer one end of a 2-in. (5 cm) piece of 12-gauge wire on a bench block, forming a paddle. Use roundnose pliers to gently curve the wire.

Using roundnose pliers, make a 4 mm loop on each end of the wire, perpendicular to the U. Repeat to make a total of three U units with 4 mm loops and three U units with 2-3 mm loops.

5 To make the bail, cut a 2Y2-in. (6.4 om)
piece of 16-gauge wire, outting both ends flush. Using ohainnose pliers, grasp the center of the wire and make a bend. Make a 4 mm loop on each end in the same direction as the bend. Bend the loops in so they're parallel to each other. Texture the wire with the chasing hammer.

On the other end of the wire, hammer another paddle in the same plane as the first one. Texture the entire wire, using the round end of a chasing hammer. File the paddles with an emery board if necessary. 2 Bend a 11h-ft. (46 cm) piece of 22-gauge wrapping wire in half. Position the bend at the center of the base wire. Wrap one end of the wrapping wire around the base wire, then wrap the other end, ooiling until the ends are equally far apart from the center.

Position each U unit on the bench block, loops down, and hammer the U portion of the piece. Open the loops, and hook them over the base wire, positioning them inside the first row of U units. Close the loops.

4 Open the loops of the three U units with 4 mm loops, and slide them on the base wire, positioning them over the wrapped base wire. Close the loops around the base wire. Adjust as desired.

6 String a pearl on a head pin. Make the first half of a wrapped loop (Basics., p, 8) above the pearl (the loop should be at least 2. mm), then wrap the wire around the pliers a second time to form a double loop. Then, spiral the excess wire around the top of the pearl.

Repeat with the remaining pearls.

7 Open and close loops on the U units
as necessary to string the pearl dangles as follows: 6-7 mm on the center U in the top row, 8 mms on the left and right in the top row, 10 mms on the middle row, 11 mm on the bottom row. @J
