Hi Everybody! NEW TUTORIAL: SQUARE CAB RING A new tutorial was just released today: the Square Cab Ring, which uses a woven technique to set a square or rectangular cushion cabochon in a ring. http://www.enioken.com/lessons/squarecabring-051.html SHORT WIRE ARTICLE Understanding the various types of wire available for the jewelry maker can be sometimes be confusing. Wire can be classified by material, thickness (gauge) and temper (hardness). Read the article on Understanding wire for jewelry making to know more. http://www.enioken.com/jewelry/understandwire.html WHICH WIRES TO START WITH Still on the same topic, I received the following question via email: "Could you recommend 3 or 4 different gauges of wire that would allow me to do the most of your designs? I would, of course, like to be able to work with all the various gauges, but my budget won’t allow it. " Read the answer in my blog: http://www.enioken.com/journal/2007/04/which-wires-to-start-with.html SEAFOAM AND PAELLA CUFFS I got the following question via email: "I have purchased the coiled bangle tutorial and can't wait to start. I'm very much wanted to also do pieces like the seafoam cuff and eventually the pink paella cuff. Can you suggest other tutorials that would help me understand the construction of these pieces?" Read the answer here: http://www.enioken.com/journal/2007/04/seafoam-and-paella-cuffs.html NEW DESIGNS I’m getting ready for a show in May, so I’ve been working on a lot of new pieces, especially necklaces, but also wavy bangles. If you haven’t seen the latest entries of the “Year of Jewelry” project, then check out the month of April to see the newest designs. http://www.enioken.com/journal/2007_04_01_archive.html MAIN DOMAIN ENIOKEN NOW BACK AND RUNNING The main domain enioken.com was not working properly today for a full 24 hours during April 24.
