Elegant Pattern Wire Designer BraceletAugust 6, 1:00pm - 5:00pm (ALREADY PAST)Wirework Class By Merilou JenkinsClass Fee: $145.00 Includes class and materials
Skill Level: Beginner
Bracelets are a hot commodity right now and are currently my best seller. In this class you will learn how to determine what gauge square wire to use with different pattern wires (and, believe me, they’re all different). You will also learn how to bundle all the wires together and hold everything in place with strategically placed wraps, how to make the clasp and how to determine bracelet sizes for small, medium and larger sized wrists. Learn about wire temper, wire gauges and wire shapes as well as all about the necessary tools. You will be working with both dead soft and half hard wire and will learn how to clean, measure and straighten the wire. The class fee includes sterling silver wire, pattern wire of your choice, a jeweler’s polishing cloth, a fleece work surface and a copy of my 12 page instruction book featuring complete instructions with color step by step photographs, all of which is your to take home. All tools will be provided for you to use in class. Class size is limited to 6 so register early!
