Silvered Ivory Stringer Tutorial (Free!)
 
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. It is a four part tutorial - all four parts are up.

Here is what I do with the SIS:

Great tutorial!! Thanks so much. Really like the idea of a drop of water to hold the silver on the marver.

Wonderful tut. I'm a Bullseye user so I don't have all the Ivory choices of 104 COE, but I'm gonna try experimenting with Ivory-Like colors and see what happens. Thanks so much for sharing.

This is a great tutorial! Thanks, Rose!

rosemarie23 2009-04-01 2:15pm

Thank you, everybody that has taken a look. Make sure to check out all four parts!

Bonnie, I would love to have this effect in the other COE glasses. I use a lot of 96 and I've used the ivory with it. Even very sparingly, I've had both good and bad results (cracking...).

I don't know the equivalent that could be used with Bullseye either.

Nougat and French Vanilla are reactive.

Oooo... does it react like the 104 ivories (or even a *similar* web effect)? I might need to look into Bullseye!

Not the same as 104, but nice nonetheless. About as close as you can get. I haven't found anything in the 96 range that reacts even close.

I've never thought to make the stringer with a clear core. I'll have to give that a try.

anne225 2009-04-04 4:51am

thank you
 
I have been away from torching for too long. This morning I finally will take some time to enjoy myself again. I am looking at the tuts and reading all the goodies. Your SIS is different and I can't wait to try it. And your site is chock full of good stuff also. Wish I had the ability to do all that also!
Many thanks
Anne:-)

Ah, but you do... you just need more of that darn practice!

Everybody that has looked - thank YOU!

cherie 2009-04-04 8:35am

I like your idea of using clear as a core, Im going to try that with my white..white seems to be too soupy for stringer control.

rosemarie23 2009-04-04 11:48am

I use clear for most of my 104 stringers.

Chau Nguyen T 2009-04-05 11:43am

Thank you Rosemari, the clear core will solve your problems with stringer, I tried this SIS method and love it.

Rose!!!!!!
 
Hi Rose-

What a great tutorial! You do make the very best SIS I've ever seen- thanks so much for doing this tut! Laura

fyrebeadz* 2009-04-07 7:58am

What a great tut, thanks for sharing! I'll try it today!

Tillie 2009-04-07 9:52am

I have been stringer challenged up until the Expo, where Jeri showed me I actually could pull a stringer! I'm going to try the silvered ivory stringer! Your tutorial was so clear that even I can understand it! :o) Thank you so much!!!

MelanieG 2009-04-07 10:16am

It never occurred to me to use clear in the middle of my stringers. Thanks a lot for this tip! I have piles of nasty clear I need to use up and this will help a lot.

Vicki B. 2009-04-08 2:06pm

Thanks!
 
Thanks so much for taking the time to write this tut, Rosemarie! I have been sis challenged forever and am always disappointed with my results - in fact started a thread about that some weeks ago.

There are great methods in this tut!! I never would have thought of the clear core and it is so logical, and I wouldn't doubt that that it spreads the ivory and silver nicely too. I'll bet the stringer is so much easier to control too.

rosemarie23 2009-04-10 4:28pm

Thank you everybody! You're the best!

Katrina 2009-04-11 8:59am

Just tried this method...walked away from the torch just to post this...Thank you for sharing :)

BeCharmed 2009-04-16 2:06pm

Absolutely fanastic tutorial, I can't wait to try it. Thank you so much for your generosity for sharing your way of doing sis stringers.
Michelle.

Cathy at the Beach 2009-04-19 6:48am

Thanks Rosemarie! This sounds wonderful. I'mgoing to try it next torch time!!!

LaurieBSmith 2009-04-19 7:06am

Rose...I had a "slap myself on the head" moment with the touch of water to hold down the silver.....one of those "Well, of course!" moments....

thanks for sharing....

rosemarie23 2009-04-19 7:13am

I'm glad that many of these tips are helping people out. I really appreciate the feedback (and I'm overwhelmed at the response...)

Chau Nguyen T 2009-04-19 10:12am

Thank you for that drop of water. You should see me running around to chase that piece of silver.
