Mary Tucker is an amazing artist and exceptional designer. So I keep coming back to her website http://wiredelements.com/ to look at her beautiful pieces over and over, marveling about their intricacies and perfection - and read about the design process behind them.
I made this locket when the tutorial was first published in Step by Step Wire Jewelry 2010 Vol.6 No.1 (Feb/March). I knew Mary's work from her TheAngstyArtist-blog. It`s not easy to get the magazine here in Germany, but it was definitely worth the hunt.
She now offers it for free on her new website: http://wiredelements.com/learning-center/free-tutorials/spiral-locket/. But make sure that you'll also have a look at her gorgeous jewelry and her wonderful blog -and be prepared to spend many hours there :).
