I'm a self-representing Cape Breton wire artist with a dozen years of experience writing clear instructions for online, adult learners. I love curriculum development almost as much as I love making jewellery! The two are combining beautifully with my online tutorials.
Through all the art forms I've explored - painting, digital art, clay sculpting, web design, paper art, and calligraphy - my love of colour has guided me to new discoveries. Now, over a decade of self-teaching has produced my distinctive, spontaneous style of wire-sculpted art jewellery.
My pieces weave non-tarnish wire around a wide range of stimulating materials. The warmth of semi-precious gemstones, the unlimited, variegated colours of firepolished glass, and the fascinating textures & history of beach glass all lend their own character to each one-of-a-kind creation. In my steampunk-inspired line, the patina of vintage, salvaged materials contrasts sharply with the bright & modern designs in the surrounding wire.
I love to create and I love to teach and share with others. I hope I can help you find a new technique or pattern you'll love!
The second part of my 4-strand braid wrap tutorial, this builds on my "Wrap with a 4-Strand Braid" tutorial, available here for only $1. You can also review the accompanying video tutorial on Youtube, linked within this download file.
NOTE: One or both of these resources is required to complete this advanced braid wrap.
With this technique you can create a beautifully wrapped flat stone, such as these sliced agate geodes.
More than 45 precisely explained steps and nearly 100 close-up, sharp photos will ensure you are never left confused.
I write tutorials that are clear, concise, accurate instructions with photos for every step - in fact I've had complaints there are TOO many photos (watch your ink!), but that's because I document each step thoroughly so that you don't miss a thing. I am an online course developer, so I know how to teach you, no matter how you learn best!
