How to Make Cocoon Beads TUTORIAL Handmade Wire Bead - PDF Instruction

Details

How do you make a cocoon bead? This is the basic tutorial of how to make Cocoon Beads, how to make your own beads using only wire and pliers. Wire Cocoon bead design is so special to me that I consider it as my signature design. Now it's time for me to share the secret.


ATTENTION:
A copy of PDF instruction will be delivered to your EMAIL address. My tutorials are digital/e-books, NOT physical books.



The name Cocoon Bead was chosen for the obvious reason that the design resembles a cocoon.


Use the cocoon beads as dangling charms, beads, buttons, anything you can think of to adorn your handmade creations. This design opens to a lot of possibilities (see photo 4 - 6). This tutorial only teach about the basic (photo 1 - 3). Design variation will be taught in a more advanced tutorial.


If you're familiar with my previous tutorials, this tutorial also holds the same high standard by featuring clear photographs and diagrams to explain the steps.


- T O O L S -

o Chain/flat nose pliers
o Round nose pliers
o Wire cutters
o Ruler
o Ball peen/Chasing hammer
o Permanent marker
o Butane Torch (optional) - the one for creme brulee works just fine.

A Review by Eni Oken

Cocoon Beads: Very clever!
Submitted by Eni On Tue, 07/21/2009 - 11:41
This is a very clever design: by using simple tools (just plain pliers) and minimal wire, the artist manages to create a very organic and handmade forged-looking bead. I was at loss to figure out how she did it before I saw the tutorial. Once I read it, I thought: "brilliantly simple!".
Although I have not completed the tutorial yet, I believe the main challenge is to work without annealing the silver, which would require some human strength, as the Teacher well points out.
NEW and EDITED: when I first wrote this review, my only complaint about the teaching itself was that I wished the Teacher had shown more detail on how to hold the pliers around step 8. Very shortly after I posted the review, the Teacher updated the tutorial based on my comments -- which shows exceptional professionalism and receptiveness.
Everything else looks pretty good - the Teacher is fun and the pictures are very good.
Design: I give them 5 stars for the handmade forged look.
Technique: Also 5 stars for being so clever in making a bead with such minimal materials.
Images: I originally gave it 4 stars due to some minimal blurry images, but again, those were updated and they are much better! So now I give it 5 stars.
Teaching: I give it a 5 stars for being open to commentary and for just caring so much for the students!
Overall: I give it 5 stars, for sheer inventiveness!
