Bracelets are a hot commodity right now and are currently my best seller. This is a basic class that will teach you all of the necessary steps for creating a wire wrapped piece. In this class you will learn about measuring and straightening the wire. 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 also learn how to twist the wire. The class fee includes both sterling silver and 14KGF wire, 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!
