Happy Wednesday, all! Once again my workdesk shows I’m working on a project from Wire-Wrapped Stones Crystals and Clusters, a Craftsy class I bought a while back.

Those blue ovals on the right are dragon cameos I hope to be listing in my Etsy shop soon.  And, yes, that blasted die & stamp set is still unopened.

This is the last project I’ll be making from this class.  There are several others, but they’re all multi-strand necklaces, of which I’ve already made plenty. Other projects I’ve made from this class are Bead Cluster EarringsChandelier Earringsa necklace with handmade wire rings and wire wrapped crystal earrings.

The project she taught was this pair of hoop earrings.  They’re very pretty, but not my style.  She gave many ideas for variations at the end, so I decided to do a bracelet.

This time I made a cuff style bracelet.  Aga teaches you how to twist wire with a power drill (it was easier and more fun than I thought it would be!) and then how to make beading frames with the result.

The hardest part of this whole project is getting the first few beads started.  Then it’s fairly simple.

Also, beware of using dead soft wire on a project like this.  Even after all the forming and pounding the metal is still quite malleable.

I’ve really become quite addicted to these Craftsy classes! In fact, I bought another one over the weekend, so I’ll be starting with project from that soon. Btw, if you’d like to see what the quality is like before you commit to buying a class, Craftsy has many free classes, including two new ones this week.

Learn How To Piece, Patch, Quilt with Craftsy for FREE – This class is perfect for the ultimate beginner to learn the basics of quilting.

Learn How To Take Professional Family Portraits with Craftsy for FREE – How perfect a class is this for the holiday season? Everyone is getting ready to take their family portraits for Christmas cards or just to have in their picture frames at home! Now they can wow everyone with professional quality pictures.

I love the idea of the above class.  If my kids were still at home I’d definitely take it. 🙂

Hope you all have a very happy and creative What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday.

P.S.  Several of you wanted to see my finished color blocked tunic from last week’s WOYWW post.

  1. nice nice nice..everything is so pretty. Thanks for sharing your photos and bright blessing to you and yours. Roberta 68

  2. Okay, that’s beautiful. Turquoise seems to be the hot color this year. And you do have a knack for bracelets–I’ve bought three from you, and love them. Bracelets are just about the only jewelry I can wear all the time. I don’t know why. Anyway, thanks for keeping me supplied!

    1. You’re very welcome. 🙂

      I have a theory about the bracelets: unlike earrings and necklaces, we can always see our bracelets and enjoy looking at them.

  3. I have some ear-rings just like that – one pair pearl and one pair sort of amber – both commercially bought. They were a gift from a best friend who I lost 10 years ago so are sort of special to me.
    Stunning work you have here.
    Must tell you that you left a comment on my blog which was not meant for me – I hadn’t done 100 cards and I didn’t have a computer on my desk. It made me smile.
    Hugs, Neet 22 xx

  4. Such lovely jewellery. I must admit I have been sorely tempted with some of the arty classes on Craftsy lately – especially when they keep going on sale. But NO! Finish the ones I have paid for already first. I must say though it’s nice to hear from someone who has taken their classes that they are good. Maybe in the New Year if I get bum into gear!

    Thanks for stopping by already 🙂
