2 Hinged Cages and a Locket - wire wrapping tutorial by MyWiredImagination

***This listing is for the instructions to make this piece of jewelry, not the actual pieces, materials, or tools. ***

This tutorial teaches you step by step how to create a basic hinged cage, with or without beaded embellishments. This is a wonderfully versatile design to hold a favorite stone, maybe a love note, or a treasured trinket. Once it is on a chain, it is virtually impossible to come open by accident.
As a bonus this tutorial also includes 2 COMPLETE step by step variations including a crossed wire and locket style cage.
The owner of a local bead shop showed me the mechanics of the hinge, close to 15 years ago. A very dear friend of mine, Master Wire Worker Ed Sinclair, created a published one in 1994. He has generously given me permission to share my versions of the basic cage and a crossed wire technique that he developed years ago.

This is an advanced level tutorial - it assumes you are familiar with basic wire techniques and improvising when needed. It is 28 pages with 67 steps and over 100 crisp, clear photographs.

Don't be intimidated by the length and number of steps - This tutorial covers 3 FULLY illustrated pieces. While this is an advanced level tutorial, intermediate wire workers with a solid foundation of basic wire wrapping skills can, with patience, complete this design.

Materials suggested: For a basic Cage
• 40 inches (101.6cm) 18 or 20 gauge round half-hard wire
• 9 inches (22.9cm) 20 or 21 gauge square half- hard wire
Tools needed:
• Flat nose pliers
• Wide nylon jaw pliers
• Round nose pliers
• Flush Cutters
• Ruler (with millimeters)
• Pen knife
• Permanent marker (Sharpie)
• Round wooden dowel (for shaping)

Frequently asked questions about MyWiredImagination

If you don't know your ring size, or haven't checked in many years - please don't 'guess'! Check out this listing for an inexpensive option to find your size - includes a special coupon code for future ring orders. https://www.etsy.com/listing/291157635/plastic-ring-sizer-reusable-easily-find?ref=shop_home_listings
With very few exceptions, each ring is custom made for the purchaser. They are not pre-made stock - I can't just put one back, and send another. That is why I emphasize in numerous places, to be very sure of your ring size before ordering, as it cannot be resized, returned, exchanged, or refunded.
If your ring (jewelry) has issues:

Send me a message through convos, with photos, so I can see what the problem is.
If it is my fault, I will have you send the ring (jewelry) back to me for repair or replacement - send me the tracking number and shipping cost and I will refund the return shipping as soon as I can verify the tracking number. I will repair or remake the ring (jewelry), and ship back to you (at my expense) as soon as possible - usually just a couple days.

If the issue/damage is not my fault, send me a message through convos, and we'll discuss what, if anything can be done and the cost. Shipping both ways on repair/replacements that are not my fault, are the responsibility of the buyer.
Yes you may sell items made using my tutorials. Please keep in mind though - you may NOT represent the work as your own idea, and posting where you learned from is greatly appreciated.
I use an independent service to automatically send the download link for your purchased tutorial(s) to the email address associated with your Etsy account. The download (link) is not on your purchase page.
Absolutely not! If your tutorial links expire, your computer dies, or you just can't find them on your computer, don't hesitate to holler, and I'll be happy to refresh the links, and resend the original email.
