An Unusual Wire Weave
by Linda Gale
Through the generosity of many wire wrappers, we have been given the opportunity to 'Learn From The Masters' - those jewelry makers who have expended years of time, thought and imagination to design and create wonderful pieces of jewelry that are true inspirations to all of us.
Many jewelry makers from around the world have one thing in common: they are willing to share a bit of their knowledge, to help those just beginning in this fascinating craft, or enlighten those who are struggling to learn new techniques and improve their skills.

These 'Master Jewelers' - and those on their journey to become a 'Master' - take time from their 'working day' to photograph and write about their techniques to share. It is for the love of their art, and their desire to help others, that they take this precious time to offer tutorials at no cost. Be sure to visit their Facebook pages or websites, as a 'Thank You', for their generosity.
