Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Use wire working tools

Pattern Description:

Most wireworkers have a particular metal which they favour above all others but the charm of this particular pattern is that it is specifically designed for use with coloured wire. The tutorial shows you how to make one bead which you can then use to make any number of pieces as shown in the examples.
