Today’s Beginners’ Wire Wrap Class marked the first in my series of handmade jewelry classes for Ouvert Gallery in St. Michaels, MD.

We began with a brief history of wire jewelry and a look at how wire wrap is being used in art and jewelry today.    Students were then provided with an overview of the tools and materials commonly used in wire wrap projects.

Then, the fun began!

Students practicing various wire wrap techniques they learned.

Today’s project was a simple wire wrap cuff bracelet.   Each student planned and created a piece that fit their own, individual styles.

As you can see, each student had their own unique style.

It was amazing to see how each student created such unique pieces working with the same tools and techniques.

I hope these smiles mean they had fun and are proud of their hard work and creativity.   I was certainly floating on Cloud 9 at the end of class!

I would like to thank all of the students that shared their time with me today!    It was a wonderful experience for me to share the skills I have learned over the years.

I have more classes scheduled in the month of February and will be adding more for the future. If you would like to see all of the classes offered by OUVERT  <– click this link
