Q&A with TjeCan

richard_1183274 asked:
This is lovely.....could we see the back of this, too, please??
TjeCan answered:
The back is clear of wire as this is a bead with holes top and bottom. The wrap is done by putting the wire through the bead. Excess wire exiting the bottom is used for the spiral on the bottom and the bail and the spiral at the top is wire from the top.

Small world I have this very same Varisicrite Bead. I love the Bail well done ,the hardest part is not mis shaping it if it is wire wrapped, I push the bail over a round object pencil, pen ect to start, this stops it getting all squashed, just a tip.
TjeCan answered:
I love this bead. The strand was marked rainbow quartz so that is what I thought it was. I need to learn my natural stones more.
sewmom asked:
Hi, love how simple this looks. How did you manage to get the wire to hold the cab securely??
TjeCan answered:
Sorry I was misleading! This is a large bead! Saw that you were on ArtFire and now on Etsy. Which do you like better? I just opened on Etsy and debated about the two.
