Judy Larson is back! Or rather, here is another great wire wrapping tutorial from this lovely teacher who loves to share. This one is on how to wire wrap your own designer hook clasp. The hook is at the back if you look closely at the pictures below :
The basic method lets you add different beads depending on what you fancy. Use just one bead if you prefer as shown here:
I agree with Judy, this design can easily be converted to an earring dangle or even a pendant if you alter the hook part.
I have shared Judy's free PDF tutorial on both Scribd and SlideShare. Scribd previously gave me a headache as some readers report that they had trouble downloading her PDFs from there. If you're having trouble, please try Slide Share. If you want to save the tutorial to your computer, click on one of the link belows. Once on Slideshare or Scribd, you can use the Save/Download function at the top. You may have to join these services. They should be free to join.
