Wire Wrapped Cabochons (2nd May)

Learn the skills to wire wrap a cabochon (flat backed stone) and turn it into beautiful jewellery.
Alana will show you the tricks of working with wire and also explain the different types of wire available and uses for each.
She will also show you how to create a ‘freeform’ design at the top of your pendant.

You can bring your own handmade or glass/gemstone cabochons or purchase one on the day.

With a bit of patience you’ll walk away with at least one (if not two!) wrapped cabs.

Alana Jones of  ‘Sparkling Dragon Design’.
Alana has been creating and making since around 8 years of age and has always been delighted by pretty sparkly things, so of course designing jewellery was the perfect avenue for her!
Being surround by a rainbow of beads and an array of components makes her very happy. As a jewellery maker wire is one of her favourite mediums, as it can be bent and shaped into almost anything!
