Daily Wire Jewelry Making Tip
July 8, 2010


Do you plan to have any videos on wire wrapping various size cameos? Cameos are extremely attractive when they are wrapped.

I agree that cameos make lovely jewelry; however, because they can be set or incorporated into many of the designs on our current DVDs I will not be dedicating specific designs to cameos alone. A cameo can be used almost anywhere a cabochon can be used!

Rather, I encourage both my personal students, and those students I have never met, to utilize any item they wish into whatever design they want to try, which causes you to develop your own style. And yes, personally, I do have at least one full 2 x 3 foot case of wire and cameo designs for sale at every show I participate in.

However, we do have some new DVDs coming out, watch for those in the next month!
