Workshop Small Metals and Wires.


Today in my metal workshop we were taught how to make jump loops and how to make small wire work. The easiest way to make loops is firstly bend copper wire around a mandrel to create a coil, then using the straight cutting pliers, I cut off joint loops and using flat head pliers I gently closed the loop and I continued this process and made a chain of interlocking loops. Then we were to practise making small wire work so we copied a Celtic design and bent and twisted the shape using rounded nosed pliers. The small wire was tricky to make as working on a small scale can be difficult. Bellow are some of my outcomes. I turned both my samples into a bracelet and charm which worked well together.
