Nespresso jewelry – instructions
Collect some used capsules in different colors. It is best to pull the heavily perforated floor along the edge with a small vegetable knife. Then clean the coffee from. Then wash out the empty capsules and dry them. A tip: Many, heavily soiled capsules can also be washed in the washing machine.
Tools that you need
- strong sewing needle for piercing the trailer
- Round tongs for shaping the ornaments
- Crimping pliers for squeezing the wire
- ev. round nose pliers or telephone pliers
- Diagonal cutter for cutting the wire
Squeezing the capsules
To squeeze the capsules is best used a rubber mallet. To create a nice surface, you can also use a meat mallet or a wooden pestle with a profile. If you take a little more time, the beautiful structure and results.
You will need 4 capsules for Nespresso earrings because two are always glued together to form a pendant. Rings can be made from just one capsule. They must either be adapted to the shape of the finger, or the flat capsule adorned and stick on a prefabricated ring blank. Blanks can also be made of wire itself – if you take the wire twice and leave it open on one side, you can adjust the ring to any finger strength. When decorating the newly created artwork, you can give your imagination free rein – small or large stones, pearls and much more.
You can use hot or jewelry glue. A disadvantage of the jewelry glue is that it takes about 24 hours until it pulls the jewelry properly.
We are already finished with our little instructions and tips and hope you enjoy the Nespresso jewelry design!
