Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You will need my previous 4-Strand Braid Wrap tutorial. In addition, to complete this tutorial you should have basic knowledge of wire tools. I'll show you the rest!

Pattern Description:

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!

Materials:

  • 20ga wire
  • Chainnose pliers or bent nose pliers
  • Flush cutters
  • Flat or square-nosed pliers
  • Nylon-jaw pliers
  • Nylon / rubber / leather mallet (optional)
  • A flat stone such as an agate slice or piece of stained glass
