What you will need: If you're making a necklace, start with three feet of cord. For a bookmark, bracelet, or key chain use one foot of cord.
You can manipulate wire exactly how you want it. Today, I spelled a simple sentiment: Nearly anything you can write in cursive can be formed from wire as well. What you will need: I like using silver plated copper wire for most of my jewelry projects. I used about 6 inches for mine, but it will depend on how large you make your letters and how long of a word you want to spell out.
Use your round pliers to help you form your letters. Your pliers are helpful in creating the sharper bends and keeping the wire nice and round. Once you have it how you like it, you will finish off the ends by looping them around your round pliers, and trim off the ends. Let me show you.
The key here is to make these ends long enough so that they rise up higher than the small letters. I just wrapped it twice, then nipped off the end of the wire. Now, attach the word to the chain. You can also use a pre-made 16 or 18 inch chain. Just cut a length of chain the same length as your word out from the center of the chain, and attach the ends.
Wire work is really a lot of fun, and you can do so many things with it! All tutorials and photos published at Happy Hour Projects are copyrighted.
