Pattern Description:

Quick, I forgot the party! I need a gift!

Whether you need holiday cheer or a great gift for a favorite instructor, these 5 little designs are the perfect quick gift or accessory - they even make great pendants!

****The main tutorial shows the method for the basic wreath.*******

Materials and extra instructions for the variations are included! I will add others as I think of them - would love to see what everyone else does with this, too!

This easy project borrows techniques used in tatting for ease in construction.
>>>There are new twists on the basics and finishing! <<<<

This is geared towards the 'tweeners' in the crowd - (YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!) Beginners who are ready to refine their skill set for the jump to intermediate or the perfect refresher for intermediate level wireworkers.
I get continual inspiration from traditional textile methods, as they often lead to new insight into construction techniques. I hope you get inspired, too!
Enjoy creating those little details that make all the difference!

If you have questions, convo me, and I'll attempt to clear the muddy waters, part the curtains of apprehension, or dodge the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune. Failing that, I'll just answer your questions to the best of my ability.
