24 Gauge Beading Wire - I hearth to cone 6-7 and tried the use of 15 gauge nichrome twine, after the first firing, it sagged sincerely badly. Now i exploit kanthal a-1 16 gauge and have been the usage of the equal wire over and over with no issues. It's awesome stuff! I get it on ebay.
Marsha, thanks for adding to this dialogue. Memory cord cutters, what a outstanding concept. Thank you for clarifying approximately the edges, of path i knew what you supposed but i will see it could be complicated. I think we might all be pleased to have you ever encompass pics of your cone 6 kiln firings the usage of bead timber to your glaze put up this month. Thanks a lot for taking into consideration it.
Caroline, top notch tip approximately making the wires long enough. They need that extra period for the little or lots of sagging they do. Glad you made that clear. Approximately heavy beads--additionally an excellent factor. Marsha neal studio shows setting the heavy ones near the edges. Happy you delivered this out. Very helpful.
When i want to reduce the nichrome or kanthal wire, i find that the usage of "memory wire" cutters makes it almost like reducing butter with a room temp knife. No longer perfect, but so much simpler! Additionally, the comment approximately putting the heavier portions close to the rims - ought to be taken as via the edges of the kiln furnishings or bead tree - no longer the edges - or as a substitute ends of the cord, due to the fact that might definitely sag. I droop all my pendants from hooks made from 17ga cord from the same old rods that include the roselli bead trees. Perhaps i need to upload a few pix of my cone 6 kiln firings the usage of bead bushes to my glaze submit this month? Search for pics on may additionally 20th right here at the boc blog :). If i apprehend from above then, the use of high temp cord to make a loop works. I'm creating a pendant, and want to make a loop (eye hook layout) and push it into the pinnacle of my pendant to run a chain thru. Some have stated it would crack. Any mind? Thank you!.
