Wire Wrapped Jewellery Taster Class

3 hours : 10am-1pm ; 7 July or email to arrange a booking

Wire wrapped jewellery dates back to 1446 BC found in ancient Egyptian pharaohs' tombs and pyramids. Gold was likely to be the first metal used, but we will be using plated wire.
This is a beautiful, ancient way to add definition and flair to beads and sea glass. We will look at various techniques, in a range of styles and colours of beads and wire to make:
- 1 necklace
- pair of earrings
- 1 key ring
No prior knowledge is required and this workshop is suitable for all levels, but wire wrapping needs a good level of dexterity.  All materials and tools are included, but if you have a crystal, you may want to bring it along.
