Beach Glass - or tumbled gemstones or rocks - are beautiful but irregular. It can be difficult to wrap them with traditional wire wrapping techniques so I developed something sweet and simple, using only a single wire per rock. With this technique you can quickly build a chunky bracelet, anklet, or necklace. More than 50 precisely explained steps and over 70 close-up, sharp photos will ensure you are never left confused, even if you're a true beginner! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY You should know how to hold pliers and work a little bit with wire.

Supplies Needed

  • 20ga wire
  • Beach Glass or irregular gemstones
  • Chainnose pliers or Bent nose pliers

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!
