Description

This is the 1st in the new series of Lonely Soldier Designs tutorials called In the Studio. These tutorials are designed to be the closest thing to actually spending time with LSDesigns in a workshop with him.

This tutorial is actually his 5th and is the culmination of many years of work. The tutorial has taken nearly a year to put together and is the most comprehensive tutorial he has ever produced.

This epic covers one design but with in the project which contains over 100 pages of detailed instructions, over 300 high def images all reference within the written instructions and plenty of hints and designer tips aimed at helping you peer into the mind of Lonely Soldier as he designs a piece.
Although this covers one project the range of skills and techniques within that are vast and endlessly adaptable. The hints and tips elements are there to try and explain how to get that consistent finish that Lonely is well known for.

This design started out as a project for the spring UK Wire Wrapping Retreat organised by The Glastonbury Wire Studio and was taught to students there, but has since been tweaked and developed into this full on pendant with lots of skills, new techniques and designer hints and tips.
100+ pages, 16 stages, 300+ step by step photos
This tutorial covers one specific design but is an immense project with lots of scope for individual development. All the skills and design ideas are endlessly adaptable to a range of pendants and cabochon shapes.

Skills covered - stitching, figure 8 weaving master class, embellished bails, hammering and work hardening wire, creating prongs for different shaped cabochons using a blueprint and much more. Each stage aims to give you the skills to start to design for yourself or to just give your skills a boost. As well as teaching you how to make a stunning Lonely Soldier Wire Wrapped pendant.

This tutorial is designed to be the closest thing to attending a 3 day workshop with Lonely Soldier.

To get the most out of this project we would recommend that you have had a go at the Prong Wrap Tutorial. This will give you the foundation skills and the practice needed to take on this project.

0.4mm 26ga
