Learning How to Wire Wrap!

Have you been thinking about learning a new skill?  I love the look of wire wrapped jewelry, and that is something I've been wanting to learn!  Thanks to the Wire Wrapping for Beginners group on the new Etsypreneur site, I see some wire wrapped stones in my near future!

This group was started by Jenn Stuart of JennStuartCreations on Etsy.   Jenn is a self-taught wire wrapper, and learned a lot of her technique on the web.  She wanted to form a group that allows anyone to post links to websites, tutorials, video, etc. about the art of wire wrapping.

In the first video I watched, I learned how to wire wrap a Briolette Pendant.  The video was simple and easy to understand, and I can't wait to get the supplies to try it myself!  Check out the video and learn for yourself!

Jenn also posted an awesome tutorial explaining how to make a wire wrapped ring.  This tutorial is thorough from beginning to end.  You can learn how to make a wire wrapped ring, too!

Many thanks to Tim and Kim for starting the new site Etsypreneur, an uplifting and helpful community of Etsy sellers!  And thank you to Jenn, for creating the wire-wrapping group.  I'm already feeling helped, and that is very uplifting!

Have a great weekend, everybody!
