    Helpful Video Tutorial: Click to Watch Basic Wire Techniques for Jewelry Making and Click to Watch Information on Forming Basic and Wrapped Loops

    Designer Tip: Cut two lengths of leather approximately 22 inches long. Fold one piece of leather in thirds, and form a wrapped wire loop near the end of the 3-strand bundle. Leave the loops on both ends intact and trim the wire and the leather tail. Repeat for second leather strand. Attach each of the leather segments to the Dorabeth branch: thread about 3 inches of wire through the hole in one end of the branch and form a wrapped loop. Trim the wire tail used for the wrapping, thread a sea glass pebble onto the wire, form a loop and add the leather loop on one of the leather sections, and form another wrapped loop. Repeat on other side. String a sea glass rondelle and a pebble onto a head pin. String each of the beads onto the remaining head pins. Form a simple loop at the top of each. Cut every other link of chain to obtain 12 links with two leaves each. Thread a chain link onto the leather strand that is “open” (without a loop) and form a wire wrap around all three strands about 1 – 1 ¼ inch from the branch. Repeat, adding chain links and securing with wire wraps, until 6 chain links have been used. The last wrap should be near the end of the leather. Again, leave the loop intact and trim the wire and leather. Repeat for other side. Add a sea glass nugget and a round dangle on the two “empty” strands between sets of wire wraps. For the center, use about three inches of wire and start a wrap around the small section of branch near the middle of the Dorabeth focal. After about three wraps, add a leaf (from the loose leaves left when the chain was cut), the dangle with both a sea glass round and a pebble, and another left. Continue to wrap about three more times and then trim the wire. Repeat on the left side of the main branch, using a single sea glass pebble and two leaves. Use 6mm jump ring to attach the clasp to the leather loop at one end of the necklace; attach the 8mm jump ring to the other side of the necklace. Apply a small amount of glue to all four cut leather ends.
