Integrating Wire Wrapping into Metalsmithing


In this exciting course I will be instructing you on a really fun and interesting method to bring texture and unique design elements into your metalsmithing, using reticulation and wire wrapped components. I’ll cover how to do a basic wire weave and how to get that piece, shaped and prepared for soldering. I will also show you silver dust reticulation which adds an interesting sandy texture to any piece. I’m looking forward to show you how much more you can achieve by adding wire wrapped components to your metal work. I hope this course sparks your imagination to build with this technique and to see what wonderful things you are able to create.
