- New Review: Jewel School Basic Wire Wrapping DVD and Kit
- Recent Blog Posts: Polymer clay bead swag, Martha Stewart's beaded snowflakes, and recycled metal beads by Debbi Austin
Over the weekend I reviewed the new Basic Wire Wrapping DVD released by Jewelry Television. It covers all the essential techniques for wire-wrapping rocks and cabochons using square and half-round sterling silver wire. As you'll see from my review, I really enjoyed the DVD and I highly recommend it if this is an area you'd like to get into. Keep in mind that I have set up a forum post where you can reply with any questions or comments you have about the review or the DVD itself.
For those of you in the United States, have a happy and delicious Thanksgiving!
Jewel School Basic Wire Wrapping DVD & Kit Review
The first DVD in Jewelry Television's Jewel School series shows you how to make beautiful, high-quality, wire-wrapped rock and cabochon pendants and charms. The optional kit contains all the tools and supplies you'll need to get started.
