Getting Started with Wire
This introductory class is perfect for beginner jewelers who have never worked with wire, as well as those who say they will never work with wire again! Students will learn all of the basic components to make most pieces – loops, spirals, squiggles, toggles and ear wires – and will make a simple bead link bracelet. Basic information about gauge, tools and finishing will also be provided.Instructor: Lorri Rich
