**************************************************************

Have you ever made a beautiful necklace and wanted earrings to match but just can't get the wire wrapping right? Well Linda Lord will teach you how the pro's do it to make a wonderful finished product you will be proud to wear.

From simply making the loop and attaching it to the earring finding to wrapping one or more briolettes, she will show you how. This is a must lesson to complete your jewelry making skills. Attached is a picture of several different uses of the wire wrap technique. A list of supplies is listed below. If you do not have all of the required tools, there will be extras for you to use at the meeting.
