Mark your calendar for the August Wire Wrapping Class that will be taught by Nancy. Pictured are some examples of what you can achieve with these skills. You may want to build upon the pendant you created in May’s intermediate wire wrapping class, or start something entirely new. You are only limited by your imagination, so start dreaming up what you want to create!

If you attended the May Class on Wire Wrapping a Cabochon with Mary McGee, this is the perfect chance to make a wire wrapped rope to hang it on!!! I use this process to make many of the necklaces and bracelets that I sell. With such simple supplies you can make something very beautiful. Great for gifts as they are not really ornate or terribly expensive and they fit anyone’s personality.
