A go-to design for so many jewelry makers. Let me show you how simple it can be to gather multiple strands of beads into one cap or cone for a polished look! Variations include crimp beads and stringing wire AND chain with wire-wrapped loops.

Checking out the tutorials from your webpage and they are great! Christine has the best store in Charlotte. Beads Inc always has stones and crystals you can’t find in your average craft store. I got those really nice copper looking kinda floral bead caps that were in the very front of the store in the glass cabinet and I think the three strand would be better than a beaded tassel cap so thanks Christine for the inspiration!
Coleen Taylor thank you so much for your feedback! I encourage you to visit the tutorial linked in the description section which is my first ever tutorial. We go over the use of crimping pliers and the difference between flat crimping and folded crimping. I like jewelry makers to use whatever technique feels most comfortable to them- as long as they know their options. 🤗🌸
This one is a bit of a challenge for me because I think I pull the wire to tight. I'll keep watching though until I perfect it..lol! Oh and I love the colors....can wear with just about anything. Thanks again for sharing! :)
I just started to bead recently, I have only been making bracelets! I don’t make them just for fashion, I love the fact that there are natural stones that give you all kind of energy :) But since I have been following you and beads in charlotte, I can’t wait to learn how to make necklaces and other new things! hope to join you guys a class soon and will be visiting beads in charlotte soon too! #giveaway
This article has been motivated by a response I gave to a problem raised on an Oracle developer forum. Our requirement is to produce a report that details customer spending for each month of the year. Our database only records actual spend, so for any given month, data for dormant or idle customers will have to be generated.
First, well create a mock CUSTOMER_ORDERS table with sparse data to represent customer spending. To keep the example simple, well denormalise the customer name onto the orders table.
a sparse report.
With our customer orders data as sparse as it is, a monthly report for purchases by customer would look as follows.
adding the missing months.
We can see from the data that we are missing most months of the year for our two customers. Remember that our requirement is to show a report for every month in 2004 for every customer. First we will build a "time dimension" set (using subquery factoring) and outer join it to our orders table.
We can see that this hasnt quite worked. We have the zero sums and the year-months, but we are missing customer names. This is because we outer joined to CUSTOMER_ORDERS on the year-months, so any customer columns would show as NULL for deficient rows. Until PARTITION OUTER JOIN appeared in Oracle 10g, we couldnt "invent" data easily , though the next section shows that it is possible in prior versions.
data-densification without partition outer join.
