I'm going to make a tutorial!

As the title suggests, I started to make a tutorial today!
It will be on my key pendant design. It's going to be very detailed and lot of work but I am really excited to share my work process with you!

My aim is to finish it in the next few weeks. It'll have lots and lots of photos and detailed steps so it's great for any skill level! It took me a long time to get the design how I like it. What's more I'll be including a some tips and templates so you can make it any size you want! So versatile!

I'll be listing it on Etsy for a small fee. I also plan, as a bit of a celebration, on doing a freebie tutorial for the whole world to see. How great is that? I haven't quite decided what exactly I am going to base this free tutorial on yet. I was thinking of something aimed at people quite new to wire wrapping. (Please leave and suggestions on what you'd like to see.)

Now, if you are awesome enough to invest in my tutorial I would totally LOVE to see your results because it would make me so happy! So please please, post your photos to my facebook page!

I'll be very happy for you to make and sell them too, just please don't mass produce them.

I just had to share because I am so excited even though I haven't actually done it yet! Sorry! All in good time my friends!

Solid Copper Wire Wrapped Bracelet

 This is my latest baby! I am very proud of this one. I usually design before I make but this kind of design needed me to go with the flow so that's what I did.
I used non-tarnish solid copper wire and high quality Czech crystals. To finish it off I even made the toggle clasp. It's nice and sturdy and should last someone a lifetime, or longer!
I really want to make some similar pieces based on this style now! I enjoyed making although it was a little frustrating at times. That's when I would stop, have a break and come back to it later and good ideas would come to me.
It's for sale in my Etsy shop if you want to check it out.
I would love to hear feedback on this piece. It's a project I have spent the most time on.
Thank you for looking!
