About This Class
Making your own jewelry is a great craft. You get to do something creative, and when you're done, you have jewelry! It can also be a wonderful craft to share as gifts and even sell.
This wirework necklace is made of beaded components linked together with wrapped loops. Want to know a secret? It is easier than it looks! Once you learn to make a wrapped loop, you just repeat the process over and over to make the necklace. It's all wrapped loops! And putting the clasp on a wirework necklace couldn't be easier. You just slide it into the end of a link. We'll show you how.
We'll also show you how we decide what beads to use for a necklace like this and how we take design inspiration from other pieces of jewelry we see. Plus we'll show you a tip the pros use to make all their wrapped loops the same size.
Making jewelry is so fun and once you learn this wirework technique, you can make all kinds of necklaces and bracelets too!
And remember, while you are working on your wirework necklace, we are right here to help! Just leave us a comment and we'll reply!

Nice class! Clearly presented instructions and the sisters are so pleasant to watch and listen too.
i love this class; Jennifer and Kitty are such happy and cheerful instructors; I love their energy and attitude just as much as i loved their wirework necklace. Thank you both for sharing your skill and talent. I watch you on youtube too.

We started working together over ten years ago when we wrote our first book Decorating With Funky Shui. Since then we've authored five more craft books and our craft projects have been featured in Woman's World magazine, Create and Decorate, Craft Ideas, and Bead Unique. Our work has been featured online on the sites of HGTV, Better Homes and Gardens, Ladies Homes Journal, and Parents magazine.
We do all kinds of craft how-tos. We love to mosaic, we enjoy candle making, and spa crafts are always fun. But our favorite craft is jewelry making, because the materials are so beautiful and when you're done, you have more jewelry!
No matter what topic we are teaching, our goal is to figure out the best and easiest way for you to get great results. We want you to have success and enjoy crafting as much as we do! Let us know what you want to learn. We shoot new video lessons all the time and can't wait to share more with you.
Come craft with us!
