There are many tutorials out there for making open spirals with wires. The problem with those techniques is to make them evenly and the same each time. That’s not an easy task and it takes alot of practice.

After remembering something I’ve used in my childhood, I had developed this new technique of how to make open spirals evenly and of the same size over and over again. No need for Special Tools here, just the usual jewelry making pliers would do.

    And thanks for lending a hand to help Angir67. She didn’t replied back nor emailed me. I gathered she figured it out from the tutorial pictures. I used to live in Italy and spoke the language. That was over 40 yrs. ago. I’ve never had a chance to use the language again and had forgotten it ever since.

    Ciao, mi è capitato di leggere questo messaggio mentre guardavo il filmato. Sono passati 5 mesi e immagino tu abbia risolto, anche perché l’autrice del video mi è sembrata disponibilissima; ma qualora per qualche ragione ti servisse ancora aiuto, posso tradurtelo io. Se invece, come immagino, è già tutto sistemato, come non detto! Comunque ti auguro buon lavoro! ^_^

    Starting from those spiral incense… you developed this fantastic idea?! You’re a genius! Thank you for sharing this!

    Vallery, I’m glad this would help with your work. If you’d be making multiples of the same size, you may want to cut the number of needed wires at the same length first. As you make the spirals, pay attention of how many turns you’re making. Then repeat the same with the rest of the wires. They all should come out the same size.

    Best wishes with your new job!

    That is so much better than the technique I have seen where you just guess how loose to wind them – making one at a time. I will be giving this a try definitely.

    @Angir67, prego excume il mio italiano. Ho usato un Web site di traduzione. Prego trasmettami un email. Il mio email mostra all’estremità del video. Grazie.

  17. È un filmato …
    È un filmato estremamente chiaro, ho la sfortuna di non conoscere l’inglese e quindi non posso leggere le istruzioni per l’esecuzione e non so come estrarle per effettuare la traduzione. È possibile averle via mail? Grazie. Una cortesia: mi spieghi bene l’inizio:come faccio ad avvicinare i due fili per iniziare la spirale. Vedo dello scotch nel filmato, serve per tenerlo vicini? Ti sarei grata se potessi rispondermi perché ho urgente necessità di realizzare la spirale. Angir
