Turning a wine cork into a bead


Dread Accessories

How did you try to make a pendant out of the cork? A friend's mother made me a "butterbeer" necklace out of a cork for the fifth Harry Potter movie premiere, and she just wrapped wire around it and attached it to a ribbon.

I like this idea. I've thought of trying to make pendants out of corks but they always turned out bulky and not working for me. I might try this when I get home and try using a clear varnish that I have that's used for clay see if that works. I would suggest either just pouring it down the whole to just coat the inside or it might be better to dip the whole thing in a clear coat sealant of some kind in order to avoid water retention like someone mentioned earlier...

separating natural locks


Dread Maintenance

I do my best to only separate after a shower, when my hair has had a chance to dry a teeny bit. The hair is weaker when it's wet, so it makes it easier to separate (gently, of course!). I've also still got a lot of loose hair from separating. I've been taking some of it and doing a little t&r to keep things in order.

I'm a month and three weeks in, though. You're a lot farther along than me! :P

Flirting with the idea of cutting ,y hair.


Introduce Yourself

I echo SE's advice about working on things in your life you may be dissatisfied with. I certainly know that for me, when I get down, I take it out on my body in some way, and the past two times have been on my hair (cutting, combing out), and I've definitely wished I hadn't done so.

So I'd advise you sit with your feelings a little longer and see if it really is your hair calling out for change, or if there are areas in your life that could use some attention. Always remember to be loving and gentle with yourself, and anything you choose, in the end, is going to be the right choice, even if it doesn't feel like it at the time.

Only you know what's best for you! :)

is rinsing my dreads everyday okay?


Dread Maintenance

I'd suggest getting rid of the problem altogether and stop smoking ;)

As for your actual question, I'm not sure, so hopefully someone else will have a better answer!

Turning a wine cork into a bead


Dread Accessories

Great idea! I've been getting into beading lately, so maybe a reamer will be even more helpful one day :) I'll take a look next time I'm around a craft store!

I like the idea too :)

I'll keep this in mind, thanks! :)

any thick wire(coat hanger)that you can hold(pliers?) safely(it will get hot).

heat about an inch of the end over the stove(red hot) and slowly, gently move it through and around inside the hole, being careful not to push too hard as you may burn deeper than wanted.

I don't have anything like that I don't think... unless you have a homemade way! :P

Dave said:
id think a drill would tear up the cork more as cork has a very open grain, it may be safer to try burning the hole with a hot poker then a good wash out.
