Pattern Description:

Learn to include geometric shapes in wire wrapping.

This pattern will focus on using tools to make wire loops in different shapes. The first step will be to create simple wrapped loops to create connector links. The directions cover how to form them all loops the same size and have the same number of wraps. Next, the directions cover how to create various geometric shapes using common jewelry tools and other household items. The links of the necklace are arranged in groups of threes (circle, square, triangle) with a spacer link in between. This is only a suggestion. Feel free to create your own arrangement such as a grouping like shapes (3 squares, 3, circles, 3 triangles) separated with a spacer link or maybe use a spacer link between each geometric link. Any other ideas? I would love to hear them.
