How To Make Handmade Balian
You must choose the wire of real silver or other metals recommended for jewelry making. If you would use an ordinary copper wire – thinking it is inexpensive – you might catch any kind of skin allergy when you would wear your handmade balian.
The next thing you need is a round shaped bottle cap or a jar lid around which you would form the curve of your balian. When you wind the wire around this lid, it takes the required shape of your handmade balian. The size of this ring is again your choice. If you feel like trying bold and stylish handmade balian, make as big a ring as you can, for instance around a glass.
To cut and twist the wire, you need flush cutters, nylon jaw pliers and round-nosed pliers. To flatten up the wire, you need a chasing hammer. If you are new to these tools, you can even use a pen or dowel instead of round-nosed pliers, and to grasp the wire you can use the ordinary pliers which would definitely be there in your car tool kit.
When your wire takes the shape of your desired handmade balian, you need to string your beads and pearls, or crystals onto this wire until a nice pattern is complete. You can try two beads, a spacer, then a crystal and repeat until full. When you successfully complete the embellishment procedure, you need to bend it on the ends so that they can be locked when worn.
This is how your stylish handmade balian are ready to touch your ears and impart a chic, eastern glamour to your looks!
