Here’s What You Need
Time: 1 Hour
- Cookie Sheet
- Metal BBQ Skewer
- Bernzomatic ST2200
- Bernzomatic Butane
- 20MM Wood Beads
- 8MM Wood Beads
- Jute or Twine
Bernzomatic ST2200 Torch
The Bernzomatic ST2200 detail torch is a hobby and household use torch. It is perfect for this project because of the convenient extensions that come with the kit. The fine point extension and hot blower extension allow you to create different designs with one torch. This torch also has a continuous mode, which makes allows you to burn the wood evenly.
Use the torch in the following ways:
- No Extension – Use the torch by itself for dark colored burns. The closer the flame, the darker the color.
- Hot Blower Extension – Add the hot blower extension for light colored burns. Note that when using this extension, allow it to heat completely before burning.
- Fine Tip Point Extension – Use this extension to add designs.
Burning the Wood Beads
- Use a large cookie sheet as your work surface. Before you begin, fill your ST2200 with Bernzomatic Butane. To do this, insert the butane tip into the hole at the bottom of the torch and press down. You will hear the torch fill with butane. This should take about 8-10 seconds.
- Place a bead onto the middle of the metal skewer. The skewer is used to protect your fingers and keep them away from the torch flame.
- Ignite the torch and turn it on continuous mode. Burn the bead by moving the flame around the bead and using the skewer to turn the bead as you move the flame in an even motion.
Stringing the Beads and Making the Tassel
String the beads onto a piece of jute string. I added 8MM beads in between. Tie the jute in a knot to create a ring.
To make the tassel, wrap the jute around four fingers about 25 times around. Tie one end with a five- inch piece of string. Tie another piece of string around the tip of the tassel. Lastly, cut the loops at the bottom to create the tassel. Trim the bottom if desired.
Tie the tassel onto the beaded ring.
Make a matching set or mix them up. Consider using the different colors and designs on the same ring.
