Jewellery Tutorials are a perfect fit for me, which means my wire-wrapping tutorials are perfect for you. Here's why:

* I'm a self-taught wire artist, since 1998, so I know what it's like to struggle with a new technique or to work without special tools, and you'll find workarounds in my tutorials. You'll also find many of my techniques are different from the usual since nobody was teaching when I was learning and I had to invent something new every time I was solving a problem!

* My day job is to write course curriculum for online, adult learners, and I'm good at it. So you'll find my tutorials have clear, concise, accurate instructions with photos for every step - even partial steps. I know how to teach you no matter how you learn best! Plus, I make jewellery to sell - and I sell a lot of it - so many of my techniques are designed to efficiently put into production, leading to tutorial stages which you can easily follow.

* I am also a graphic designer, so you'll find a consistent, readable layout on every page, photos that draw your focus to the relevant step, and constant clues to keep your place - even if you forget to staple and the whole thing falls apart!

Look for a unique wire style, lots of color, asymmetry, irregular gemstones, inexpensive non-tarnish wire, some steampunk elements, and even some polymer clay.

You keep reading, and I'll keep looking for exciting new ways to help you make jewellery!
