Looking at the individual components and learning to combine them into new wire jewelry designs allows for incredibly transformative work. The quality of your work shows in intricate symmetry, finely wrapped wires, and beautifully finished pieces. Following Sarah’s detailed step-by-step wire jewelry instructions and fully illustrated process makes it all possible.

The three wire weaves that are at the heart of many of Sarah’s wire jewelry designs are featured in this single pendant. Basic figure eight, modified Soumak, and lashing weaves bring components together in a show-stopping piece. You’ll also bevel and facet wire, shape fine-pointed swirls, and use a torch to draw a bead on wire ends. Test your wire jewelry skills and take on weaving your own Ada pendant today.
