I tried searching through the archived articles but didn’t have any
luck finding the infomation I was searching for… I hope it’s okay
that I post this message:
I was wondering if anyone could help me by explaining how to make
silver beads. I would like to make long (at least 1.5" or 3-4cm)
beads that are sort of cylindrically shaped but taper at both ends
(largest diameter= 1/4"-3/8" or 5-10mm and smallest diameter=
1/16"-3/16" or 2mm-5mm). Some of you might be familiar with the
Southwest Native American silver pinion bead. I would like to make
beads similar to this.
Also, what would be the fastest and easiest way to make saucer and
round silver beads?
I would appreciate any advice/suggestions/recommendations. Even
pointing me into a direction or recommending a book would help.
