Basic Skills Necessary:

  • This is a high-level beginner tutorial - you should at least be familiar with tools,simple techniques such as cleaning and straightening wire, creating simple loops and spirals.
  • This tutorial is a progression of my beginner tutorial Charming Hearts 2 - Knowledge of that tutorial is helpful but not required.

Pattern Description:

Published in the Feb/March 2014 issue of Step by Step Wire Jewelry!!! :)).

Fanciful Flowers will teach you how to create the basic flower and adding the second layer of petals. You will also learn how to create an all-in-one ear wire for your flowers.

PLUS as a bonus, you will also learn a simple flower drop, wired 2 ways to be used alone as delicate earrings, or as flower dangles for the 2 layer flowers.

At the end of the tutorial you will find tons of information on tools, supplies, and suppliers with photos and direct links; and a few technique refreshers if you need them.

This tutorial is 38 pages, with 84 detailed and expertly photographed steps, with a whopping 149 clear detailed photographs which can be enlarged to 200 to 300% without any significant loss of detail or clarity, to help you complete these projects successfully. - Almost as good as having me right there with you!

Please do not be intimidated by the size of the tutorial - it covers several projects and techniques, and was written for both the visual and instructional learner.
