Wirework Loops: Freedom Butterfly Earring Class with Vintaj

Freedom Butterfly Earrings by Bettina

With all the transformations taking place in the world, Peoples movement toward a more liberated existence is at the forefront of our times.  Similarly this reminds me of the life cycle of a butterfly from an egg, to a caterpillar, then to the chrysalis where it is in its cocoon-like stage, and finally after great change it turns into a beautifully bright, soaring, free butterfly.  

Tuesdays' class project is a tribute the wonderful changes and to our current time.

Stage 4

Our 2-hour wire class "Freedom Butterfly Earrings" will be an introduction to to making the single most important task in wirework- a perfect loop.  You will learn how to make a simple loop, a 'P' loop and then take it up a notch and finally make the wrapped loop.  Also we will show you how to open and close a loop and a jump ring.  These techniques are considered core to wireworking projects and will come a long way for you in any future project you may want to create.

2-themed kits will be available for pre-class selection upon pre-registration

You will also be stringing onto wire a variety on Czech crystals in different sizes and colors along with a Czech pressed glass bead and a Vintaj Butterfly that will be the focal and central component of your earrings.
