When you have a solid grasp of wire jewelry components, you'll be completely unstoppable as a jewelry designer! From wrapped loops to component links to making your own clasps and ear wires, these techniques will be great tools to tackle any wire jewelry pattern, plus, they'll lay the foundation for your own inspired wire jewelry creations!

Pull up your chair and prepare for this hour and a half of one-on-one instruction through this lesson. You'll feel like you're sitting right across from Dale as you work through these projects:

  • Wrapped loops
  • Three styles of headpins
  • Two styles of ear wires
  • Independent bail
  • S links or S clasps

DVD run time is 1:33:24. This DVD does not have subtitles at this time, but does come with complete follow-up instructions.

Each of these components can be used in multiple ways. You decide if you'd like to leave them as components for a simple design, or combine them for intricate, mystifying jewelry designs! As Dale always says, Versatility = Affordability - and the more uses you can think of for these wire components, the more designs and sales you'll make!
