How to Make a Wire Wrapped Horse Head Tutorial

By on Friday, December 26, 2014 2 Comments

Horses are just beautiful creatures - a mix of power and grace.  Here is a tutorial by Cherished Gems on how to make a wired horse head.  Although this is a horse head design, the general wire working principles can be used for other animal designs.  Just needs some experimenting to come up with unique patterns!


As the designer said, drawing the outline on paper is the first step.  Once done, the wire can be bent following the shape.  Then it is a matter of filling in the space.  I like how she used scrolls. The zig zags she added do suggest the horse`s mane!

One suggestion is to use thicker wire for the outline and hammer it flat or use square wire instead of round.

  2. Absolutely! And then fill it with wire scrolls. One could also add beads on the wire too.
