Wire Wrapping Classes Offered

Beginning Wire Wrapping

3 hour class

Wire wrapping is one of the most popular techniques in jewelry making. Learn to master the perfect wire wrapped loop using wire and beads to create beautiful, contemporary earrings, bracelets and necklaces. This class is required in order to take more advanced wire working classes.

Make it your own with personal bead and wire choices. Bead holes will determine the size of wire you use. Remember bracelets take more wear and tear so you’ll need heavier wire which means larger bead holes.

Basic Tool Requirements
Round Nose Pliers
Chain Nose Pliers
Flat Nose Pliers

Sterling Silver price varies day to day.
24 gauge, 20 gauge & 18 gauge
Copper wire in same sizes (great for practicing)
German Silver-copper wire covered in sterling silver
My recommendation for beginners.
Artist Wire- copper wire covered with silver plate and nylon

All supplies can be purchased on line at; http://www.thewirewizzard.com/

All wire work jewelry can be a personal statement.
By simply changing the beads, crystals, or gemstones each piece made with exactly the same technique is uniquely different.

Felted Clogs

New skills in knitting using Cascade 220 I knit very large clogs then felted them to fit. Surprisingly these were not as hard as I thought they would be.
