How to Silk Wrap

Handout


Project Info:

Level: All Levels

Estimated time: Improve Your Technique

Silk Wrapping is an ancient technique used by many cultures to tie off beads on raffia, close off Kimono cording or use in jewelry as seen in sample below. In many cases, the silk wrap is so secure, you never need to use glue to finish. We are showing the Steps ending with a dab of GS Hypo-Tube Cement for those new to the technique. But if you ask Janice, she would say….Pull the knot into the middle of the silk wrap and it’s not going anywhere!” Be sure to practice and come to your own conclusions about gluing or not gluing. It is easiest to learn to silk wrap over a cord that is secured to a board. Please Download the handout for complete instructions
