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!

No Solder Blue Green Copper Tribal Earrings DIY FREE PDF Tutorial

A “cold connection" is any method of attaching or connecting two or more pieces together without the use of heat (soldering, brazing or welding). This method is usually needed when the pieces to attach can be damage by the heat and flame of a torch. “Cold connections” can also be used as decorative elements. In this tutorial metal tubing is used in a non-traditional way. The tubing is flared and compressed to trap another piece of metal, avoiding the use of solder. This is a cold connection. These hand formed boldly colored and textured earrings are original and easy to make. This tutorial is an instant downloading PDF file, it has 10 pages, a template, 20 photos and plenty of tips.

Reverse texture Copper and silver earrings DIY Tutorial

There are many ways to texture metal; one of the easiest is to use hammers that have some design cut in to their faces. There are some available at jewelry suppliers or you can make your own. In this project we will use a commercially available hammer. Its one of my favorites; you get a surface covered with tiny overlapping squares. We will get a “reverse” texture on the silver by rolling it through the rolling mill. Obtaining a raised squares texture. This tutorial is an instant downloading PDF file, it has 7 pages, 16 photos, a template and plenty of tips. The tutorial is for beginners and intermediate students.
