Shaktipaj Designs' $75 Gift Certificate Giveaway for Wire Wrapped Jewelry Tutorials

By on Monday, August 19, 2013 116 Comments

Perri Jackson of Shaktipaj Designs has been making handmade things since she was a little girl starting with fine needlework.  Her mother encouraged her to reach for high quality work where the back looks just as good as the front.  These days she says, "When I'm not spouting spiritual philosophy, I take my glasses off and bend really small wire into pleasing shapes for long periods of time." 

  
It's a good job she so enjoys working with wire because she creates some really lovely wire wrapped jewelry design tutorialsShown here are some of my favorites.

Soutache Braid Coiled Copper Wire Bracelet Tutorial
Perri is very detail orientated and skilled with making very fine wire wrapped coils as shown by her soutache braid coiled bracelet tutorial above.  A number of her designs feature tiny coil work - a signature element of Shaktipaj Designs!  They are small because she is wrapping fine wire around her working wire.

I love the jewelry made with spoons. As I grew up in the 70's all my friends had jewelry made with silver spoons. There are so many things I want to learn to make. I would love to be able to use the tutorials and make something beautiful like I see here.
