Perfect!
How did you know that my Coiling Gizmo just arrived from Shipwreck Beads yesterday? It is still in the box mystifying me. No longer! Now all I need to do is order that wire and I will be a coiling fool (much better than the finishing nail I have been practicing on~)
Enjoy the day!
Erin
P.S. I would like to know what tools you feel are the best ones to invest in. Would you buy the Tool Magic stuff to dip your pliers in? And show how you make those perfect connections with your disk beads. Mine never look that great and I am always afraid I will break your pretty beads!

Thanks Kerry, very good video.

Thanks commenters. I had wanted to do this last week but was too tired and lazy. I know A LOT of people got coilers because of my demos at Bead Fest, and I was worried about the sticking problem. (Mine doesn't stick, it has an "older" coating on it.) So, hopefully, now you know what to do if it sticks!! LOL.

Thanks for thinking I am cute Lori, lol... I should have worn my beadfreak shirt then we would have been twins!! OH OH... when we get together in a few weeks, we should wear our matching shirts and make a video for everyone!!! FUN!!

Erin, what disc bead connections do you mean? I am happy to share how to connect em.

Great video,Kerry! You are a natural teaching! :-)

Thanks Kerry! Now I want a coiling gizmo. However, my mind is thinking can I run around the block to Lowes and make my own? lol I can't get to a jewelry store right now and I don't want to wait for an internet order. hee hee

OH, this is definitely useful information. I've gotten my coil stuck so many times. I'll be trying your little tricks for sure.

It was kinda funny. The video froze up on me right when you made your "Monster Grip" face. hehe

Great job Kerry. Easy to follow and you covered all the "what if's" we might run across...thanks!

Great tutorial

I got the Coiling Gizmo a long time ago, but gave up on it, and starting to use my jumpringer all the time, but after seeing the tutorial, and seeing where I was going completely wrong, I will go and have a play with the Gizmo. Thank You! :-)

Stefanie said...

Wow, thxs:-) I love your book but to see you in action is even better. And thxs for helping with the "stikcing" problem. Run in that quite some time.

Janet said...

Claire Maunsell said...

Wonderful tutorial! You have a great soothing comforting 'you can do this' kind of manner...

Shannon said...

Thanks for the tutorial. I have your book and was nervous to even try to make all those coils. I am going to parawire next payday.
Thanks so much for taking the mystery out of coiling and it was nice to see you in person.
