About This Class

e1408476

Have you ever tucked piece of sea glass or seashell into your pocket? Has your child ever picked up a ‘treasure’ for you on the beach or in the park that you have accumulated in your junk drawer? These items were too precious to throw away but you had no idea what you could do with them. Maybe you are a gem cutter who does not feel comfortable soldering and pickling your designs because the fumes give you a headache (that was me). Wire Wrapping is an alternative jewellery making tool – headache free, and fast way to create unique works of art.

In this tutorial, I will teach you how to wire wrap your object using an easy braiding technique that will turn your ‘found objects’ into pendants. You can use inexpensive craft wire; wire found at a hardware or electronics store; or sterling silver wire for these projects. Most likely, you already have the tools to get started.
