**About the class:**
Come learn how to turn your crystals into wearable pieces of healing art by beautifully wire-wrapping them into pendants!
There are numerous ways to wrap a crystal. Some crystal wraps can get very detailed, intricate, and beautifully designed. In this class, we will focus on beginner-friendly basic wire wrapping. We will learn how to identify our materials and tools, and how to use them safely. We will then learn 2 different wire wrapping techniques including how to make a bail for the wrapped crystal to slide onto a necklace. The first technique is a more free-form simple wrap around a rough or raw crystal that anyone can get the hang of! The second technique will challenge us just enough to learn how to create a cradle or cage for a tumbled crystal!
By the end of class you will have 2 beautifully wrapped crystal necklaces and the skills to continue practicing and experimenting with the techniques learned in class.
