This is a great way to learn wire wrapping, the key technique in most wire work jewelry, including rosaries and earrings. After completing a few practice links, students will have the chance to design a lariat necklace with beads and materials that you choose. You'll also be introduced to the briolette wrap, which you can use to make drops from teardrop-shaped beads with sideways holes. Create gorgeous jewelry and leave confident knowing your loops are properly wrapped and reliably sturdy! Relatively simple designs are often completed in class.
Several style techniques will be covered, including all-link jewelry, link-and-chain jewelry and the lariat necklace.
What you will learn:
- Make wire wraps
- Make briolette wraps
