I was wondering about some different or easy way to wire a briolette.


If you haven’t signed up for our Free Patterns you really should, as one of them shows exactly how to work a briolette easily. Go here to see a picture and find both the Free pattern and a kit!  https://wire-sculpture.com/earring-patterns-supply-kits/Dale_Cougar_Armstrong_s_Briolette_Earrings_Supply_Kit-6136-834.html

    I’m beginning to wonder about some of these questions. There are too many magazines that show you how to do the basics, such as wrapping a briolette, doing a simple wrapped loop, as well as tons of free video clips, etc. out there on the internet as well as a variety of jewelrymaking forums you can check out and join. You simply have to get out there and look for them, it is not that hard to do for pete’s sake.

    I do believe that the person asking the question did find a place to look for the answer and that would be the reason she posted it here…I have been getting these posts for a long time now and have seen all types of questions from people of all skill levels both with wire work and the internet.If I come across one I don’t need …that’s what the delete key is for. Sure I agree there are many other places she could have found her answer but she found this one…and if this one is beneath, you feel it is below you, as you said there are many more out there..and I’m sure Dale welcomes all questions and if you read the reply, she even promoted a kit for sale. If you are the moderator of this website, I apoligize

    Thank you,

    in good taste

      Juliana and Mary,
      Brandon and I both moderate this bog and we try to honor most opinions. I think what Mary is saying is that she’d like to see more folks look through the information already on the site before asking a question and that Juliana is replying by saying that I welcome all types of questions regarding wire jewelry.
      I thank you both for your comments and I appreciate most of those that people send me (as you know by reading even some controversial ones that I approve for posting).
