Wire-wrapping, a versatile, essential element of jewelry design was devised to form transformational connections much like a certain accessory brings an outfit together and gives it new life. Wire-wrapping, the second in a series of core courses in jewelry artistry, is a technique used to create: dangle, chandelier and other types of earrings; pendants; wire and bead necklaces and bracelets; rings; wire beads; clasps and chain. In an interactive, creative, convivial and collaborative atmosphere, you will learn how to create two types of dangle earrings as well as a wire and bead bracelet similar to the ones pictured. Once you have mastered this simple technique, Allison Wiley will show you how to use your own creativity and new found skills to create fabulous, one of a kind jewelry for yourself and others. Best of all, at the conclusion of the two hour course, you will leave with two pairs of earrings and a bracelet.
