Maybe you have double holed diamond shaped gemstones in your stash? I know I do. So I was really pleased to come across this wire wrapping tutorial by Brenda Sigafoos over on Wire Sculpture. She called it the Lady Luck ring.

Earlier this summer, I went to Guelph, Ontario's Art on the Street - a wonderful collection of artisans displaying and selling their wares on that hot, hot July day. I was delighted when I came across Nicole Gagnon who creates minimalist and often exotic wood jewelry for her Etsy store, NG Nicole Gagnon Wooden Designs.

Wrapped leather bracelets are ever popular and fun to make. But wrapping the ends of the cord neatly at the start wrapping the beads can be a tad challenging. So Kate Richbourg of We Can Make That at Home used the ancient silk wrapping technique of hiding the knot under the wrapped threads for her ball chain and leather bracelet tutorial. No glue is needed for this secure fastening.

Taking off your rings to wash your hands is a good thing because the soap will be thoroughly washed away. Otherwise such residue can irritate the skin. Putting your rings on the sink might be a bit dodgy as they could easily fall into the sinkhole. So having a ring holder is definitely an asset. But having a glamorous ring holder is even better especially if you are a jewelry maker!

I like framed designs. The pieces look more finished in many ways. If you agree with me then you'll like Judy Larson's easy wirewrapped briolette with beads pendant tutorial. As you can see, she formed a loop at the top making it easy to add just a jump ring or two to connect to a chain necklace.
