We wanted to share a link with you to a free wire wrapping tutorial for a wire wrapped cabochon. Cabochons are popular shapes for wire wrapping. Once you master the basic technique, you can use it to wrap cabs of different sizes. The tutorial is from Tumble Weed Glass. Enjoy!

You can make jewelry quickly and easily by learning a simple technique ~ wrapping a head pin. You use a head pin to make dangles that you can attach to ear wires, necklaces, bracelets…the applications are numerous. You can see a tutorial about how to do this at the Bead Shop website. The tutorial is: Use Headpins to Create Dangles
You can vary the look by using headpins of different colors or using jeweled ended headpins. They also have flat ended headpins, or you can make your own by hammering the end of your wire out.
Headpins can be purchased from Wire Sculpture, they have been an invaluable source of supplies and information since we began creating jewelry in 2004.
