We have been doing wire work for about 10 years or better. I saw my first piece of wire wrapped jewelry at a Rock and Gem show. I fell in love with all the pendants and rings all wrapped in wire. I really haven't looked back since then.
Today my husband and I own a small retail bead/rock shop in our home town and we have just finished our first book which will be on Amazon.com and in our store, which we sell at all the Rock & Gem shows around our neck of the woods. Book name is " Making Memories"

Waste not, want not. When you make jewelry using wire and/or metal sheet/strips, you almost always end up with left-over pieces from the projects you have made. After a while, you will see your amount of scraps growing. Don't throw them away, what is now bits of scrap, can be made into new, beautiful and unique, pieces of jewelry.
This tutorial will show you how to use those scraps to make beautiful beads, instead of letting them go to waste.
By recycling your scraps this way, you will not only feel good about creating less waste, you will also save money by using materials that would otherwise be discarded.
You will learn how to turn waste into values with this tutorial. It will give you detailed step-by-step instructions, with large, clear pictures and lots of suggestion of how to make the pictured project.
If you don't have enough scraps yet, you can, of course, include new, previously uncut, pieces of metal and/or wire, or make the project from entirely new materials.
