Our focus is to learn to create lovely pointed swirls and paying attention to the little details to create better results in your wire work. Students will learn how to use wire weaving techniques to make a cohesive design without the use of solder and see how polishing techniques can elevate your work to a new level. I do recommend taking this class before you take the Aries Necklace class.

** (From Student Level) This pendant uses wire weaving minimally so even if you come to class not knowing the weave you won't fall behind. The focus of this class will be learning to create lovely pointed swirls and creating more polished professional results in your wire work. We will also be introducing torch work to ball up ends.
