Jewelry Making TIP 2 - Mini Tutorial-How to make and polishing those small, pesky, fly away jewelry end caps

End caps are one of the things I prefer to buy rather than make, but sometimes you HAVE to make them (color, texture or shape needs to match the rest of your necklace.) This was the case with the necklace I made last week, I had silver end caps and copper end caps but nooo... brass end caps. So had to get out the brass tubing, sheet and wire and get to work!

Making a bright copper cored Lampwork glass beads for jewelry - DIY FREE Mini Tutorial

The Moretti family introduced the use of copper mandrels as a “cost effective “production method of Venetian glass beads in 1920. The beads were made directly over copper mandrels that were dissolved in nitric acid after annealing. The steel mandrel & bead release combo was retaken when environmental laws made more expensive the use and disposal of copper and nitric acid. So using Copper as a core for lampwork glass is not new. This mini tutorial is about the reaction of the bare copper to the flame and its effect on clear glass. You can get two very different effects, a deep dark red or swirls of aqua blue and bubbles floating in the clear over a bright copper surface. This is a FREE PDF file for instant downloading.
