More Handy Tips
Use jewelers epoxy to glue twisted ends into jewelry clasps. Feed wire through and around twisted ends and into cone ends to finish with a wrapped wire loop. Thread a needle with braided beading thread and stitch WireKnitZ® in place, or to secure beads and other adornments.

Straight pins are handy for securing WireKnitZ® while developing your design.

Conical objects for shaping WireKnitZ®

Collect WireKnitZ® cuttings and use in place of glitter, capture in resin for making beads, pendants, etc.

Make beads by gently crushing and rolling scraps of #4000 Coarse Knit Series between your hands.

To narrow rolled necklaces, gently stretch while rolling.

There are so many uses for WireKnitZ® — personal adornments, home decor, quilting, scrapbooking, felting etc.

WireKnitZ® is extremely flexible and forgiving. If you bend an edge, or spread the knitted wire more than intended, use a soft toothbrush (flat bristle is preferred) on a flat surface, hold down one side with one hand, gently brush with the other. Alternatively, try rubbing in a circular motion between your thumb and finger to reposition the wire. If all else fails, save the damaged piece for future projects.

Really, nothing goes to waste!
