Daily Wire Jewelry Making Tip for
February 22, 2011


Hi Dale, I love your instruction style on your DVDs. I’m almost ready for your Advanced Series.

In an earlier Daily Tip you mentioned using ribbon as a necklace for a heavy pendant. It was unavailable on the link. Would you repost that explanation? I’d love some information on using ribbon.

Congratulations Jeanne! The broken link to the Ribbon Necklace has been fixed.

Finished Ribbon Necklace

Basically you determine how long you want the ribbon necklace to be, and add about 3/4 to 1" to each end (or 2" to the desired finished length). At each end, fold the ribbon over at the 1" location.

On one end, slide on a clasp with an attached jump ring and use either 20- or 18-gauge half hard half round wire to wrap the end into the main length. Repeat the same procedure on the other end, after sliding on a jump ring with an attached chain with a small headpin charm end for the final touch!

    Hi Dale, I just wanted to say I am so glad someone asked about the ribbon necklaces, and hope they do well with it cause the first time I saw this ribbon necklace I made only 10 went to my last festival (LAST YEAR) and they sold like they were going out of style. My guess would be it’s because of the economy being what it was and still is. So you best belive I am making alot more for the first festival of the year and keep on doing it through out this year. Oh it was around Christmas time last year when I sold all of them. Love all you tip’s Judy Gee

    Where can I find the little silver and gold rectangles (2-3 mm) with the small holes to tie it on a cab. I want to stamp my avitar or put Stirling Silver or Gold Filled on it with a stamp. And while we are at it, where can I find a stamp like that, or have one made with my avitar on it?
