My passion for jewellery designing and making started 12 years ago with a silversmithing course and I have since embraced other techniques such as stringing, bead weaving, chain maille, resin but my true love is wirework in which I now specialize.
I have contributed a monthly project to Beads & Beyond for the past 3 years, written numerous tutorials which I sell on my website and I am the author of The Absolute Beginner's Guide: Making Wire Jewellery (published by Kalmbach books) which teaches you in great detail all the basic techniques you need to become proficient at wirework.
Don't forget to download my free tutorial about the basic tools you need to get started in wirework.
Keep the photos of your loved ones secure and close to your heart inside this unique sparkly locket which can be worn either as a pendant or used as a mini double photo frame (it stands neatly on its side when opened).
Combining wirework and bead weaving techniques, this advanced tutorial is not for the faint-hearted. It contains 79 steps illustrated with 118 photos and extensive written detailed directions including how to make the gorgeous crystal woven panels, the hinge, the frames and the clasp.
It is 3cm/1 1/4" square. Other panels of the same size such as bead work, embroidery or tapestry could be substituted on the frames.
