Wire I - Diane Mason
This is a traditional wire class where students go from basics to preparation for WIRE II by using extensive classroom theory combined with a monkey-see, monkey-do approach. Ten/twelve projects are planned where no two are alike, each with varying skill and learning techniques. Students begin with the simple and walk their way up to a higher level. Novice wire wrappers will easily transcend to being prepared for WIRE II. Techniques covered and used are for creating two different bracelets, two different calibrated cabochons, an un-calibrated cabochon, un-calibrated cabochon earrings, simple earrings, faceted stone pendant faceted stone earrings, use of snaptights and a basket enclosing a stone. No two projects are alike. Wire will vary in sizes, shapes, and tempers. There will also be no craft, copper, or brass wire used. Students will learn in the wire that they will go home and cue to create fabulous pieces for sale or gifts. Students will be taught to clean jewelry appropriately, purchase cabochons, price and sell finished products, and purchase and use necessary tools.
