Basic Skills Necessary:

  • This is a beginner/intermediate rated tutorial. It will be helpful if you have practiced using round nose pliers to begin spirals and have minimal experience hammering wire.

Pattern Description:

The best reason to give a present is 'just because'!

This tutorial will show you a quick and easy way to take a crystal cube and turn it into a sweet little package for someone 'just because' you want to.

I demonstrate how to wrap the cube only and thereafter it's up to your imagination. You can easily add ear wires, jump rings and chain or neck wire or ribbon.

Shhhh! Within the tutorial you'll also find a little tip/option to turn the bow's loops into hearts.
How sweet is that?

A little package with big results!

PLEASE NOTE: This tutorial does not teach coiling. An example of a coiled wrap is included to show how you might choose to vary the basic bow wrap.
YOU ARE PURCHASING THE TUTORIAL ONLY.

I'm fascinated by wire and the way it flows, gemstones and their endless patterns, and seeking to form a beautiful marriage between the two.
