Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You should know how to hold pliers and work a little bit with wire.

Pattern Description:

Beach Glass - or tumbled gemstones or rocks - are beautiful but irregular. It can be difficult to wrap them with traditional wire wrapping techniques so I developed something sweet and simple, using only a single wire per rock.

With this technique you can quickly build a chunky bracelet, anklet, or necklace.

More than 50 precisely explained steps and over 70 close-up, sharp photos will ensure you are never left confused, even if you're a true beginner!


  • 20ga wire
  • Beach Glass or irregular gemstones

You Will Also Need:

  • Chainnose pliers or Bent nose pliers
  • Flush Cutters
  • Roundnose pliers and/or bailmaking pliers
