WANDA PLATA Sea Wave Bracelet for Woman in Sterling Silver 925, Surf, Young Girl, Ocean Wave, Beach
About this deal
In Part 2 of the Ride the Wave Make-Along, we’ll finish the bracelet that we started in Part 1 of this series. We start by weaving the two sides of the bracelet frame together. Then we’ll finish off the bracelet by securing the waves in place and forming the woven band into a bracelet. If you bought the original Ride the Wave tutorial, you may be wondering, what’s changed? Do I really need the upgraded guide?
Wire Cutters – Any sharp side cutters will do. Just make sure that your wire cutters are designed to cut heavy gauges of wire. I have an old pair of heavy duty wire cutters that I use just for cutting wire that’s heavier than 16ga. These skills are essential for the Ride the Wave design. But one of the issues with the original tutorial is that I couldn’t find great outside references for those skills. So, I had to create my own! Once that’s done, I rinse the bracelet thoroughly to remove any particles of steel wool. And then I put it in a tumbler barrel filled with warm water and a generous squirt of Blue Dawn. I tumble each bracelet for at least two hours. For more detailed instructions for resizing this bracelet, refer to the the free project starter guide, which is available in my resource library. I wore the Embr Wave on and off for a few weeks to see whether or not it could keep me cool in a heat wave or warm me up in overzealous office air conditioning. The verdict: The original Embr Wave is a nifty idea built into a clunky, awkward, and expensive wearable that doesn’t deliver.I can’t speak for people who have internal issues with thermal regulation. My body temperature seems to regulate itself normally; I've only had issues when suffering from fevers and one unfortunate hypothermia incident after a day of skiing. People who are susceptible to minor weather changes might find the Embr Wave more useful than I do. Bracelet size is a very personal choice for people. Some like a close fit (that would be me). Others like a looser fit. If you need a larger size or a half size in between the three sizes specified,use the material specification for the next size up to make sure you have enough wire to achieve the fit that you’re after. You’ll need to know how to use a chasing hammer for this tutorial. And you’ll also need to know at least one 2-core wire weaving pattern. You can use any pattern you like for this design. I’m particularly fond of the Modified Soumak Weave and the Basic Figure 8 Weave. Step 3 – Let’s Make a Ride the Wave Bracelet Together! I’ve provided all the information that you’ll need to create three common bracelet sizes: Small (7 inches), Medium (7.5 inches), and Large (8 inches) in the free project starter guide. These measurements are based on the inner circumference of the bracelet.
I buy my wire on one-pound bulk spools almost exclusively from Rio Grande. You can also buy 4-ounce spools for some wires through Rio Grande, and that’s perhaps a better option if you’re not ready to commit to buying in bulk. In this video, well form the clasp and the waves on our bracelet frame. And we’ll also sand and polish the frame to perfection. Then we’ll finish our bracelet in Part 2 of this series. One last bit of tumbler advice before you go. Always make sure that any beads or stones that you use for your jewelry are safe to tumble. I don’t recommend tumbling natural pearls, soft gemstones, ceramic beads, or glass beads with polymer coatings, such as glass pearls and certain frosted-look glass. As always, if you’re unsure if your beads can handle the tumbler, run a test tumble with a bead that you’re willing to sacrifice.Don’t forget to grab the free Ride the Wave Bracelet Project Starter Guide, which provides all the specifications for this design, along with some additional helpful resources. If you’re in good health, have access to the thermostat, and plan on using your hands to do things like type or wear long sleeves, this device isn’t worth your money. And even if you don’t fall into those categories, you might be better off looking elsewhere. Well, as far as the bracelet construction goes, not much has changed. I’ve clarified some details in the instructions, I’ve updated some of the images, and I’ve created space for you to record notes on any modifications you’ve made to the design. But I’ve also added more helpful tips and easy access to additional training resources. Such as the Modified Soumak Weave, the Figure 8 Weave,and the How to Use a Chasing Hammervideos, for instance. The wrist-worn device—just a little bigger than an Apple Watch—comes with an inch-wide magnetic metal strap that fastens around your arm. You wear the Embr Wave on the inside of your wrist, directly against the pulse point said to be so sensitive to temperature change that targeting it with heat or cold can thermoregulate the entire body. Pressing a button on the Embr Wave makes it heat up (or cool down) against your wrist, which then—according to the manufacturers—warms (or cools) the rest of you. There's also an app you can use to fine-tune the temperature. Does Embr Wave work?
