It's Riveting...

yes, literally. :) I finally finished and photographed the bracelet I made started in Kim St. Jean's "Scrap Box Bracelet" class at Bead Fest Texas. She is an excellent teacher, so take a class from her if you have a chance.


With what I learned in Kim's class and some help from a Fundametals tutorial by Janice Fowler, I went on to rivet a few more things. I like to see a lot of instructions (and pictures!) when I'm trying out a new technique. :)

  5. Thank you so much everyone!

    Melinda - Purchased! I used seamless sterling silver 2x3 mm crimp tubes. They came out looking wide/fat because the copper was so thin - maybe 28 gauge. They were technically a bit too long but they didn't fold or buckle.
