What are you most proud of? I have already tried to make a trinket box with a rivoli incorporated into the lid in 2011 (3rd pic) but didn't like the outcome at all. The rivoli looks like it's sunken into the vessel. I really like the scalloped edge on the new version.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Begin with Mary's locket. It's quite easy, although it needs a bit of practice. The trinket box is a bit more complicated. Then experiment with different shapes and different weaves.

Do you have this tutorial to share? I can't find it anywhere on the web. Thanks

I'm sorry Hannah, there is no tutorial. A while back I started with Mary Tucker's Spiral Locket: http://www.craftsy.com/project/view/mary-tuckers-spiral-locket/91829, then I tried to experiment. All my lockets and trinket boxes are based on Mary's tutorial. It was published in Step by Step Wire Jewelry 2010 Vol.6 No.1 (Feb/March). If you can't get the magazine perhaps you can ask Mary where to get the tutorial. She's Wired Elements on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Wired-Elements/127714920578975

Sorry Hannah, I forgot that Mary also published a trinket box tutorial "Trinket Box 101". It was a free tutorial but she seems to have deleted her website. But she's a very kind and helpful person. If you can't contact her on Facebook perhaps you can email her via Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/shop/wiredelements. Good luck!
