Posted by consxavier | Thursday, February 16, 2012 | Category: , | 0 comments

Yesterday, a wirename keychain's fan from my wirename fanpage contacted me through SMS asking if she can order her keychains through sms. I told her,"why not!". This is not the first time someone SMSed me to order. I was really excited because I have been getting more orders this week. Must be because of Valentine's Day. People are looking for Valentine's Day gift and the best gifts are the one that are personal and unique. My keychains fits this description and are best given as gifts.

Maybe some of you are wondering how do I go about processing my customer's order. Am I right?

First of all, My customers usually will contact me through email, through my fanpage, by SMSing me their intention. They usually sms me like this

Customer: Hi, I want to order wirename keychains. How to order?

The total price will be RM....Please transfer RM...into my Maybank account,110108248806, Cornelius Henry.

Customer: Ok sure. Thanks. I will bank in the total amount as soon as I can.

after a while....

Customer: Hi, I have tranfered RM... into your maybank account. Please check and proceed with my orders.

Me: Thanks., I am in the midst of doing your keychain. I will post tomorrow morning

Customer: Thanks.

The next day, I will go to the local post office and buy a Post Express Envelope that cost RM3.50. RM1.50 is my fuel and processing charges.

Me: Hi, I have posted your keychains. This is your POST Express tracking number. LE123456778MY. You can go to www.post.com.my to check. Thanks for your order! Please visit my blog at www.wirename-craft.blogspot.com to learn how you too can bend your own wirename keychain.

Customer: Ok Thanks.

Me: You can expect to receive you keychains in 2 or 3 days time.

End of SMS.

I want to takes care of my customers because I want to make it big as a wirename crafter in Malaysia. I might start writing a book about this craft when the time comes and my previous customer will be the first to know about it=)

Anyway, I am writing this at a cafe called Bull Frog Kitchen Cafe, Donggongon, Penampang enjoying a glass of iced Nescafe and their FREE Wifi.=)

In the meanwhile, please enjoy the latest pictures of the keychains that I make today.

He shared on how he makes money showcasing his wirename through craftshows, market and events with the unique skill that are exposed on this ebook. This guide is an easy to follow step by step roadmap for making simple wire name jewelry that can help you earn extra cash on the side.

The best thing is that it does not matter whether you are a newbie or what your previous experience are because with this “the Andy Turner Own Craft Business” you will be guided and will show you what exactly you need to do.

John Wirename Necklace


I found a video on Youtube that will help guide you in creating your first wirename keychain. This will be very helpful for those wanting to know more on how to bend certain letters. I especially loved the way this guy bend his letter "J". It was so nice!

Tools Needed:
1. Round-Nosed Pliers
2. Wire Cutter
3. Silver Plated copper size 18 gauge or 1.0 mm.

In my early days, one of my main problem is finding where I can buy the wire to be use for my name keychains. You can find this in a lot of bead shops, craft shops but if you want to use it for your business, I recommend ordering it from Griffin.de (a German supplier). However, in order for you to order from them, you need to be company.

It's worth it, even with shipping, as it works out that you can buy it for roughly $2 a roll whereas if you buy it in local craft stores you will pay $7 - $9.

Enjoy the tutorial video below.



Was that helpful! You must be excited to get started on your own project now! Have a look at some of my wirename projects below.

Wirename Writing And How To Make It A Profitable Business


Wirename Writing Tips for running a business with your new found name making skill


General tips for wire work


Use the pliers as a vice rather than using them to twist the wire itself. Use the other hand to manipulate the wire.

Use the file to carefully remove any marks left by the pliers on the wire. This works with pure wire or alloys but not plated.

The first small letter after the capital determines the size of all the other letters following, make sure the first letter isn’t too large or small, because then the whole name will be either large or small – this really comes with practice and what you are making the name for – necklace, brooch or something else.

The spacing matters too, same applies – whatever space you have between your first two letters should remain constant wherever possible throughout the name. Generally, spacing should be slightly greater in smaller names (3, 4 or 5 letters) and reduced in long names (7,8,9 letters)

Any symbol can be made at the end of the name, I use a heart basically because I learned that from my teacher, but I have made treble clefs (music notes) and stars in the past, best to keep it simple if you are selling them though.

Buy a silver cloth if you are working with any type of silver wire, it is invaluablefor first using it when you straighten the wire prior to making the name, and when you have finished making the name it removes any marks or fingerprints.

Whenever a small letter I follows a letter with a loop above the baseline – eg:  lower case l or f make the loop on the l or f very slim to make room for the letter i which is raised slightly above the rest of the lower case letters because of the dot.

Remember too that any other letters in the name with loops above the baseline should be slim also to match the l or the f.

When making a lower case n always make the spacing very small just before you make the letter n. When you complete the n you will see why, the spacing automatically widens due to the method used in making the n.

The underline on the names that I make are basically to strengthen the name to make it more robust. You can leave the underline off though if you wish and terminate the name just after you make the heart and loop it once around the upstroke of the wire just before you come to the heart. This works best with short names where the strength isn’t so important, but it can cause havoc on long names where they are easily bent out of shape without the underline.

In the past I have made name bracelets as there is a demand for them. I did drop the idea selling them though, as they require extra work. I didn’t find an easy way to stop them getting snagged on clothing and the people who bought them would lose them quickly. That is not to say there isn’t a method of making name bracelets (or anklets) from the wire they just need to be more robust somehow.

There are lots of applications for personalizing using the wire names. Here are a few I have come across:

  1. Name necklaces
  2. Name brooches (pins)
  3. Name tie pins
  4. Letter holders (made with thicker aluminum wire)
  5. Name Bracelets
  6. Name Anklets
  7. Name Earrings
  8. Names on cakes
  9. Names to personalize anything you can glue them to
  10. House names (made from thicker wire)

There are undoubtedly more applications – plenty of scope for the imagination !

If you are thinking of making the names for a living, make some for friends and family first to get their approval. Also in a situation where you are selling directly to the public you will need to make the name fairly quickly on a “while you wait” basis so you should get the time it takes to make the name down to at most 10
minutes.

To carry your business around with you, you can use a laptop bag or any similar sized bag and one of those plastic compartmented fishing trays. In my kit I carry most of the stuff needed to make names.

Here is a list of what I carry in my bag and which may help you also:

  1. 2 x long nosed pliers (one fine and one regular)
  2. A pair of snips or cutters
  3. A pair of scissors
  4. A 12 inch (30cm) ruler to measure chains
  5. Pens
  6. A Black Marker
  7. Silver cloth
  8. Sterling silver wire 1 mm dia, and 0.9 mm dia (for the jump rings),
  9. silver plated wire, gold fill wire
  10. Jump rings (the rings that attach the chain to the wire in necklaces)
  11. Sterling silver chains of different lengths
  12. Small pieces of black card to mount the name on
  13. Larger pieces of black card to protect the name in transit (when I post names)
  14. Re-sealable plastic bags to put the name in
  15. Stamps for postage
  16. Rectangular pieces of contact (cut from a big roll) to protect the address labels
  17. Sheets of address labels to print the sending and receiving addresses


If you want to sell your names at craft fairs or markets, the simplest way to display your wares is to construct a display unit from pin boards or cork boards.  You can then mount these on a portable table of some kind. I used to use an artists easel, very light and portable.

Your setup at markets and fairs etc is typically very simple and requires a small space at the market or fair which is a great advantage rent wise. I used to fit easily into a 2 m space. Also you can rent a space with a friend as an alternative which helps with stuff like toilet breaks and getting food as they can look after your setup while you are away.

Over the years I had built up a large stock of popular names,. This helps enormously when you are selling in front of the public as it means you don’t have to make every name. I found roughly that I sold 50% of my names from stock and 50% making them on the spot. This means you double your takings. Names vary in popularity according to the country you are in, but you should be able to find a list on the net of say the top 50 or 100 names or more.

You can store your stock in plastic sealed bags which protects them from oxidizing. If exposed to the atmosphere they will tarnish over time and it is an arduous process to clean them. Always have a large float of change when you work at a market or fair – there’s nothing worse than running out and having to hassle your stall holder neighbors for change.

A money pouch or belt is the best to store your float in, it saves you
being separated from your money and the possibility of getting it stolen.

Wire Jewelry Step by Step : Mother


Wire Jewelry Step by Step : Mother

Before I start the lessons, you need to know a few things.

1. The wire can not be too soft. If you start with the soft wire, your names are not
    going to be easy to make them latter on. 28 g. round is good.

2. If you use sq. wire you need to pay attention every time you bend it because it will
    twist, for sure. {In this case you need square nose pliers to untwist it}

3. Always pinch the wire from the back when bending.
    Do not unbend (Go back to do it better} because it will brake

4. Make sure your work is flat and even while you are working the piece otherwise is
    going to be difficult to do it later.

5. Get 15 inches of wire so you practice more than once.

6. Be patient, maybe the first few times is not what you expect but practice will get
    you there. {My first one looked like a license plate in zig zag big and uneven}

Now here we go on the wire name lessons:


        Lesson #                    Description
       One                     Amy
       Two                    Beth
       Three                  Mother
       Four                   Cindy
       Five                    Diane
        Six                      Evelyn
     Seven                 Ruby
     Eight                  Frida

TUTORIAL 3: "Mother" Pendant 

1. Start about 1½ inches from the end of the wire, turning the long piece of the wire to the
    front of the pliers; make a loop {one complete circle}.

2. Working on the long piece of the wire; pinch a little less than ½ of an inch and bend to
    the back.

3. Press it down at the top, roll the top to the right just a little bit. You are rolling two wires
    together (picture #1 in tutorial #1



4. Grasp the wire at the top and pull it to the right, a little bit.

5. Grasp the wire at the middle, and bend it back and up, pinch a little; pull it to the right.

6. Grasp the wire at the top even with the first part of the “M” and bring it down; pinch at
    the top ( you made the “M”)

7. Grasp the wire at the bottom even with bottom of the “M” and bring it up

8. Grasp it about half way from the “M” , bring it down to the right to make a hump 
    (see picture #1)



9. Grasp the wire from the back at the bottom and bring it up through the front 
    (see picture #2)


10. Grasp the wire at he back; on the left side of the circle and bend it to the right
     ( see picture #3) you are making the “o”



11. Leave the pliers there and bring wire to the left and down to make the “o”
      (see picture #4)


12. Grasp the two wires at the bottom and through the “o” bring it up (see picture #5)


13. Grasp it at the top even with the “M” and bend it to the back.; pinch it at the top.

14. Grasp it from the back at the tip; bend it to the right.

15. Grasp the wire that you just bend, an bring it around the pliers and the wire; to the
      front of the “t” you are making the cross of the “t” (see pictures in tutorial #2)



16. Grasp it at the back and bend it down and hide it behind (carefully pinch the cross of
      the “t'” ) making sure is even and you do not see the back wires.

17. Grasp it at the bottom of the “t' and bend it up.

18. Grasp the wire even with the top with the “t” bend it down and to the front looks like
      an “L”.

19. Grasp it at he bottom and bend it up, toward you and pinch it a little.

20. Grasp it in the back about the level of the “o” and bend it to the right, to make a hump
      you made the “h”.

21. Grasp the wire at the bottom and bring it up; grasp it even with the “o” and bring it
      down through the front to make the “e”.


22. Grasp it at the bottom and bring up, (grasp it even with the “e”) and bend it back and
      down, pinch it at the very top and bring it up.

      Grasp it close to the bend top and bring down (see picture #6) you have the “r” Grasp
      it at the bottom through the back and bring it up



Congratulations: You finish the pendant: MOTHER.

Now; take the end; grasp it a little higher than the tip of the “M” (
look at the picture for reference) and bend it up, fold it back and around the
pliers twice, to form a double loop; then around the wire twice to finish it;
cut the excess in the back.

This is for the chain; do the same with the piece of wire that you left in the very beginning.
Finish filing the ends and carefully crimp the ends.

Polish it a little and Enjoy it!!!



Cut the extra wire in the first loop, make it look like a heart. Fold the wire to make a loop
to hang do it twice. Put it on the name.
