The tutor Rachel Murgatroyd is an
expert in this field of jewellery making.
Wire wrapping is one of the oldest jewellery
making techniques. Jewellery made using
this method has been found in the pyramids
and has also been seen in Roman and Celtic
jewellery. The jewellery uses wire twisted
and interlocked, there is no soldering or
gluing. The art of wire wrapping requires
a minimum amount of tools.
For £80.00 Rachel will
be providing a pack containing enough materials
- A silver and white topaz pendant
- A silver bangle
- A silver wire wrapped pendant using
own stone or one of your choice purchased
as an extra from Rachel.
- Plus day two course materials.
Pack includes 15 feet of
wire, snap set and a white topaz.

If you have a favourite tumbled
or cut gem stone that you would like to
set please, bring this along. Stones will
be available to purchase along with suitable
wire for the work.
Additional wire will be available
to purchase from Rachel should you wish
to do so. Rachel has gold fill wire for
sale during the course. Due to the recent
high price of gold, gold fill can no longer
be part of the set materials fee.
