Skill Level:

medium skill level requirement Intermediate

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • This project tutorial is listed as an ADVANCED INTERMEDIATE project due to the design skill needed to adapt it to the individual, but has enough pictures and text that those with strong INTERMEDIATE skills can challenge themselves successfully.
  • A student will benefit most if they have a complete understanding of **at least** intermediate wire wrapping skills. It is assumed that you possess at least the basics of simple wrapped coils in small gauges, simple turned loops, and appropriate round wire handling.

Pattern Description:

Lots of texture and technique make this wire and bead ring a beauty! The base is adapted to wire from a well-known beading stitch: Right Angle Weave (RAW) The rest is pure wired goodness!

A few of the techniques you will learn in the 26 pages and over 80 FULL COLOR PHOTOS in this tutorial:

(tm) How to create RAW in wire neatly, closely, and repeatably without mangling or hardening the wire.
(tm) How to get wire through very small spaces and channels without kinking or breaking it.
(tm) How to keep your work close and tight, yet still create room to manipulate the wire.
(tm) Methods for finishing your work neatly and virtually invisibly. (This is THE KEY to professionally finished wirework.)
(tm) There is a Bonus mini tutorial inside: My personal methods for using Liver of Sulfur (LOS) to bring out the detail in your wirework.
(tm) And MUCH, MUCH more
