Prayer boxes might contain a simple wish, an expression of hope for the future, @ plea for safety, or even statement of goals to be accom plished, In some cultures a prayer box ‘might have alid that can be opened, while in others, the box is sealed with the message safely inside. These pendants are usually made of silver and often have bells, tassels, or other dangles to embellish them and add movement. There are many traditions surrounding the use of amulet cases or prayer boxes, and while there has been debate over thelr origins, itis safe to say that many Itures—including Buddhism, Hindu ism, Islam, Christianity, and Judaism. have prized them as ritual objects for centuries. While this may stil hold true today, many also view them as jewelry worn for sentimental or secular reasons because they help focus one’s thoughts ‘onan important goal or wish, RESOURCES Check yourloca bead shop ot ‘contact: Delica clnder beads and seod beads: ‘Caravan Beads (890) 230-8941, worcravanbeads om, Daisy spacers bead aps dangles, chai, and Nymo mon and Fete braided beading ties Dee's lace, wumbeadebydee com, october/november 2012 39 DESIGNER ofthe Year TECHNIQUES ircalarnetting brick stitch picot Seep. 94 fr helpful technique information PROJECT LEVEL ODO Seep. 4forpojecelevel information adorned chain necklace THE BEADED ELEMENTS IN this embellished-chain necklace are held together by removable links, making it easy to reconfigure the design to your liking. 1) CHAIN.

No glue is needed in this smart design—the ends are finished with a bit of wirework instead. TECHNIQUES Ar urine braiding witeworking PROJECT LEVEL OD! t's Tips =Instead of making your own clasp, form wrapped loops at both ends of the bracelet and use jump rings to attach a clasp of your choice + Always cut the beading thread longer than you think you'lneed to.avold running short while you're braiding, + No need to be exact with the number of beads you put on each strand. You can easily add or subtract beads as you work. Keep the weight in the center of the disc’ hole, You may need to reposition the weight with your fingers until you get accustomed to applying the right amount of tension when moving the threads. + Let gravity help you position the beads: Tilt the disc toward you when moving the upper strands and away from you for the lower strands, + For convenience, place your kumihimo disc on top of a tall vase and let the weight hang inside while the strands hang outside around the edge. + When making the final wrapped loops, wrap the wire very close to the end seed bead until the components are tight and do not move. This keeps the knots hidden inside the end bead, 1) PREPARATION, String the beads and ‘prepare for braiding: Strands: Form a wrapped loop at the end ‘of one 8" piece of wire, Note: The loop ‘must be small enough ofitinside a large-hole bead when assembling the bracelet, Cut four 42" strands of thread. Center the 4 threads in the wrapped loop and knot the threads around, theloop, Stringing: Place the large-eye needle atthe ‘end of I strand and string SOA; secure the beads witha stop bead near the end ‘of the strand. Repeat three times fora total of 4 strands with SOA on each. Repeat four times using B fora total of 4 strands with 408 on each. Disc setup: Slide the beads toward the stop bead on each strand, Holding the kkumilhimo dise with the numbered side ‘up insert the straight end of the wire own through the discs center hole. Gently bend the end of the wire into aU and hook the weight onto it. Distribute the8 strandsas shown in the box on page 76 (Fig. a)-Slide the stop bead up ‘ach strand until the first bead is 2" below the dise. 2) BRAID. To start, follow the kumihimo braiding pattern shown in Bigures b and c (Gee box) eight times without adding beads. For the ninth and subsequent repeats, bring the top bead on each strand. to the hole in the center of the dis. Slide thebead under the nearest strand that is crossed to the right or left; this locks each bead in place. After each turn, check the tension and bead position on the braid. Continue braiding until the beaded section is about 1’ shorter than your wrist measurement, 3) FINISHING. Complete the braid, secure thebeaded section, and make the clasp: Final rounds: Remove the stop beads and remaining beads from the8 strands, Lay one 6" piece of wire across the center hhole, on top of the disc. Continue braid- ing without beads above the wire for ight repeats, Remove 2 strands from opposing slots on the disc and knot them over the wire. Repeat three times toknot the remaining 6 strands. Eye half of clasp: Slide the knots to 2" from one end ofthe wire and form a small wrapped loop that includes the knots in the loop, Note: The loop must be small enough to fit inside alarge-hole bead. Gather the 8 strands, knot them, and trim them close to the knot: Use the wrapped loop wire to string 1 large-hole bead, 1 bicone, and 1A, hiding the end of the braid and kmots inside the large-hole bead: form a wrapped loop at least #" in diameter (Fig 1), Hook half of clasp: Remove the braid from the disc, take the weight off the bent wire, and straighten the wire. Use the wire tostring 1 large-hole bead, ‘Lbicone, and 1A, hiding the end of the braid and knots inside the large-hole bead, Use flat-nose pliers to grasp the wire 1%" from the A and fold the wire back onto itself, Use the tail to forma \wrap just above the A.

Hold the dise parallel to the floor with number 32 held away from you. Tuck ‘the strands into the slots around the disc and place the wire through the center hole (Fig. a). Note: See Fig. a caption for specific positioning of strands for this design. Adding a weight to the wire below the disc helps keep ‘the correct tension. The braid will form at the center hole, extending below the disc as you work. Do notallow the strands to tangle and keep the weight suspended, 2. Move the bottom left strand between notches 16 and 17 upto the notch between 30 and 31. Move the top right strand between notches 32.and 1 down tothe notch between 14 and 15 (Fig. b). Rotate the disc one-quarter turn clockwise so number 24 is now at the farthest (top) position where number 32 Used to be (shown at the top of Fig. ¢) 3. Move the bottom left strand between notches 8 and 9 up to the notch between notches 22 and 23. Move the top right strand between notches 24 and 25 down to the notch between Gand 7 (Fig.c). Rotate the disc one-quarter turn clockwise. 4. Using the strands that are now the farthest and closest to you after the tum, repeat Steps 2 and 3 until the braid is the desired length. 5. When making beaded braids, slide ‘each bead to the center hole and tuck it firmly under the strand that crosses to the right or left to lock the bead in place. Do not allow the bead to pop up.

A panel of forty-one designers, bead shop owners, and editors of beading magazines, including Beadwork’s Melinda Barta and Jean Campbell, will vote for the best original work in each pair. The competitors will also vote for their favorites in every pair except for their own. After several rounds of judging, the public will be invited to vote for their favorite in the last three weeks of September. The winner will be announced at the end of October.
