If you choose to focus only on basic skills, know that you
can make wonderful jewelry with these techniques. The above necklace
is made primarily with techniques you will learn in the Basic
Wire Skills section. The clasp and one bead are the only elements
you won't find in this lesson and they can easily be substituted
with techniques you will learn.
A note to you lefties: Sorry, the photos are all right-handed.
But, the written directions are for both right and left handed
people. I do hope you can make sense of it all........
I urge you to read through the Studio
Tour section of my website for an overview of tools, equipment
and safety concerns. The studio
tour also includes important information such as how
to hold your pliers. There is also a Tool List to help you get started.
