Sarah Thompson Thru The Looking Glass Bracelet

Wire weaving is a fun technique that can be used to mimic the look of Metal Smithing. Learn how to make a whimsical, filigree cuff with just wire, no soldering needed. Sarah will show you how to organically shape with your fingers for more flowing movement in your wire, guiding the wire instead forcing the shapes to emerge. Each bracelet will come out unique as you learn to embrace the wire. This is a labor intensive bracelet with a lot of weaving involved.
