Pattern Description:

This tutorial was written for the absolute beginning wire worker - or a beginner who feels they are missing important skills and techniques to further their wire working journey.

The design is a simplified version of my Swarovski Crystal Bracelet tutorial, but by no means a lesser pattern. This bracelet has evolved over the course of many years teaching students how to wire wrap for the very first time, and has paved the way for my Crystal Hoop Earrings, the Marcella Ring, and many more designs.

At the back of the tutorial is tons of information on tools (with photos), wire, suppliers, and all the basic information to get you started. Almost as good as having me right there with you!

This is probably the largest(?) tutorial I have written to date - I've worked on it on and off for almost a year - phew - There is 39 pages with 127 full color detailed photographs and 99 steps.

Don't let the file size scare you - I wrote this for folks who love wire jewelry, but until now have had no idea where to start.
