My new tutorial for a Wire Wrapped Tulip Pendant that you can also make into earrings or brooches is out.
Of all my tutorials, this one has taken me the longest time. I actually started it sometime in March. Halfway through I decided to retake the whole new set of pictures, not satisfied with the earlier ones.
Its hard work but finally its out and I hope it will be another inspiration for you.
The design for this wire wrapped tulip is one of a kind. The story behind this design started when a customer requested for a flower brooch back in Mid 2008 - First Tulip Brooch.
The rest is history as the saying goes :)
What's in this tutorial?
This tutorial teaches you how to create a One of a Kind Wire Wrapped Tulip with five (5) petals. Although you need to know the basic weaving technique, the pictorial instruction will guide you step by step until you successfully complete a tulip. Once finished, this tulip can be turned into a pendant, earrings or brooch. Its a good deal...hehe :)
Material and Tools?
You don't have to run to the store and purchase additional materials or tools if you are already a wire jeweler.
No special tools required.
Just the basic material and tools - wire and beads, round nose pliers, flat nose pliers, bend nose pliers, nylon jaw pliers and wire cutters and most important of all a dose of creativity and inspiration. Maybe a bit of patience...with the weaving :)
