Skill Level: Beginner
So now you have come to the bead show and you see wonderful gemstone “donuts”. But, what to do with them? This class will teach you how to create a spectacular piece of jewelry showcasing this type of stone. You will learn how to measure enough wire, how to bind your bundle of wire, learn a bit of wire sculpture and how to make a bail. Wire sculpture is more flowing than regular wire wrapping and gives each piece a unique look all its own. Learn about wire temper, wire gauges and wire shapes as well as all about the necessary tools. You will be working with dead soft wire and will learn how to clean measure and straighten the wire. The class fee includes sterling silver wire, a gemstone 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!
