View Full Version : Silvered Ivory Stringer - SIS - Tutorial

04-02-2009, 02:27 PM
I just finished a tutorial on how I make silvered ivory stringer (SIS). I use this a lot in my beads and have a very specific method that I use to make them and I thought that I would share.

The tutorial is on my blog; it starts here (http://spawnofflame.wordpress.com/2009/03/31/silvered-ivory-stringer-revealed-a-tutorial-part-1/). It is a four part tutorial - all four parts are up.
Same link! http://spawnofflame.wordpress.com/2009/03/31/silvered-ivory-stringer-revealed-a-tutorial-part-1

Here is what I do with the SIS (ok - these are not part of the tutorial, lol!)

Nicely done Rosemarie! I'll have to try it with a clear core.

You are all welcome ... and thank YOU for looking at the tutorial.

Karen - don't we all have a ridiculously long "to do" list? lol!

Hi Rose,

Thanks so much for the tut. I have been playing around some with silvered stringer. Do you get the same reaction when you put it on any color or just certain colors?

The reaction does depend somewhat on the base color glass. If you use ivory on turquoise or certain greens, it is much darker (the colors that you would get the dark line when you use them and ivories together). If I don't want that, then I use a "buffer" color in between - such as white; it is not a perfect solution, but I think that it helps.

Rosemarie it's a very well written tutorial - thanks so much, I'm looking forward to trying it as it's a different method to what I usually do :D

Thank you sooo much for posting this! I will have to try it as I have all the required materials. It will be a new technique and stringer to use.

Thank you!

Deb, if you haven't used any silvered ivory stringer before, be prepared to become addicted. It gives a really fun predictable, yet unpredictable result - if that makes sense. Every bead is an adventure, because you kind of know what you'll end up with, but not exactly.

You read my mind! I was just thinking last session I have to figure out how to do this technique. Thanks for the great tut.
