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.
