I hope you enjoy the 'picture tutorial' and find inspiration for your wire craft! Click each image to enlarge and get a closer look at the wire.

Hello, I would like to know how to keep my wire from getting all messed up. I am trying to make this, I have made a few things in the past. My wire just looks like a mess. Any tips. Could you make a video?

Hi Gertieanne, thanks for the comment! I'm glad to hear you're trying to create a pendant, it's quite a bit of work and while I don't really have time to create a video, you can read here for some tips on handling the wire...

Here also is a link to my youtube channel where you can find video tutorials given by other jewelry and wire artists. Have fun and keep in touch, I'd love to know your progress. If I have time in the near future, I will certainly consider building a video to show how I handle the wire. Thanks again!
