8 Designs and Techniques Using Simple Tools
Make several variations of heart and spiral wire wrap rings.
Why not DIY your jewelry?
Are you ready to save 90% or more on your jewelry by making it yourself? The designs that I will teach you in this course cost pennies to make and are now found on ETSY and in stores for at least 10x the cost of making it yourself.
In this course, I will teach you the fundamentals of wire wrapping so that you will learn how to make 8 different variations of Heart and Spiral rings using simple tools. The course will cover:
Tools that you need and types of wire to use.
How to use round nose pliers, chain nose pliers, wire cutters, a ring mandrel, chasing hammer and an anvil. Don’t worry though. If you aren’t quite ready to invest in the mandrel, chasing hammer and anvil, you can still make beautiful designs. Just swap out the mandrel with a tube of lipstick….really!
In each of these designs you will need a maximum of 10 inches of wire. Most only take 5 inches, and if you use copper wire (called rose gold in Australia), it will cost less than 50 cents to make a ring that you could turn around and sell for $10-$25! Not a bad return on your investment.
The rings will take between 2 and 10 minutes to make, depending on the complexity of your design. Since you are creating a spiral base, you could even use jeweler’s glue to attach a cabochon or tumbled stone to your design, but I love the simplicity of the spiral.
Now, let’s get started!
