Wire Work

It is well worth mastering a few basic wire work techniques because they will add strength and versatility to a piece of jewellery. It is sensible to practising these methods using cheap wire until a consistent result can be achieved. Overworking a piece of wire will make it weak and likely to snap, so if a mistake is made in a piece of jewellery it is best to start again with a new length of wire.
