Jewellery Making for Beginners: Basic Wire Wrapping

Create beautiful and unique jewellery using the ancient technique of wire wrapping. You’ll learn three beginner-level styles of wire wrapping, creating a different piece of jewellery with each. In the first class, we’ll discuss tools and wires, as well as how to wrap both rough and tumbled stones—a basic technique essential to every wire artist. In the second class, you’ll learn to handle different sizes of beads to create a twist pendant. Finally, you’ll try your hand at slightly more complicated techniques: a three-strand braid and a five-strand wire braid on a cabochon (polished gem). There will be a tool/supply cost of $55 (payable to the instructor in class).
