Wire Wrapping

Wire wrapping, one of the oldest techniques in making hand made

jewelry, is the art of wrapping and twisting wire around a cabochon,

faceted stone and/or other component without the use of soldering or heating the wire. 

 

Beginning students learn to wrap a cabochon in the first lesson.

Alternative projects are available.  Advanced students may work on

pendants, pins, rings or bracelets.

Participation fee: $10.00 plus the cost of the materials

Supplies needed:  A beginning student should bring a ruler, a pair of flush cutters, a cabochon, round-nose pliers and chain-nose pliers.  

This class is taught at the Lapidary Shop by appointment only.  You must be a CCGMA member.  Contact Kathy Bachman at 360-681-3994 for further information.
