      • Attaching Beadcaps to Beads

        Hey gals!

        I just started trying to do simple beading. Here's the thing. I bought some beadcaps and wanted to use it on some beads. However, the bead caps don't seem to adhere well to my beads.

        My beadcaps are supposed to look like vines 'crawling' on the beads. Because they look like vines/roots, some bits don't sit well on the beads. It's quite soft and easily bent so right now, I try to manually shape it to fit the beads but it still doesn't rest flatly. Especially the ends. It looks quite ugly and when I tried to wear them, it's actually a little scratchy on my skin.

        How do I get them to rest flatly on my beads?

        (i know this is a terrible description of what my beadcaps look like. I'll try to take a picture so it's more accurate.)

          thanks! (: But what wires do you use to wrap?
          If possible, do upload a pic of the chain connector as well. (:
          the cheapest Ive seen are $12 for clear ones? any place sells them cheaper? :\
          lastly, do you use normal cutters to cut?
          Sorry bout the qns!

          ps. ur site has many pretty stuff!

              I've seen some sold at Spotlight at Plaza Singapura. I think they were recently trying to get rid of old stock and sold a whole 1m string of them for about $2 or so. I'm not sure if it's still on.

                  You can just use 24ga or 26ga wire to wrap.. =)

                  PM me for the pix k? i'll send it to your email.. Lazy to upload it online The $12 you are referring to the diamante chains? I bought them at that price.. I know HK has much cheaper chains.. So wasted that I didn't buy them during my trip.. Ya just use normal cutters to cut..


                  I just went to People's Park with my friend yesterday cos she wanted to buy vintage belts! Too bad I don't wear belts.. The designs for the clasps are pretty!

URGHZ... so addictive..
                      Are you looking for plastic or glass teardrop? If plastic, there is a shop that sells them at 20-30 cents per gram. It is diagonally opposite Golden Dragon and they just open. They sell ALL plastic beads and many teardrop shape.

                      Bright Plastic Ring - Go to Little India and buy indian Style children bangles (10 for $2) and use them instead. I bought black and pink at Tekka Food Centre (opposite Seng Siong). Many colour available, and they have plastic, metal...etc. if you want bigger one, buy adult bangles.

                        Do you use copper wire? I love to play with wire and bought a wigjig last month but I find that there are always marks on the wire.

                        Can you recommend better wire but not 925 silver - too expensive.
