Leather Wrap Bracelet

This bracelet can be made as a single or multiple wrap.  Very easy to make and has been a very trendy style lately.  Rachel has her own spin on how to assemble it so it will stand the test of time too.  Complete beginners can do this.  Great idea for a party project also.

Freeform Stone Caging

After the basic wire wrapping lesson you can go onto learning how to make a pendant with a stone, piece of seaglass, seashell you found at the beach... You name it!  We once had a lady cage her keyless entry remote because the loop broke off.  Very handy skill to learn and opens you up to using things other than beads as jewelry.
