Woolywire Sale!

New Sale in my shop to celebrate 6 new colors I just spun up from the batts I made!  =)

Thursday, April 7, 2016

Hi everyone!  I have decided to begin posting updates about my shop regularly here along with other woolywire tips and ideas.  =)

I would like to begin with introducing newcomers who haven't had much experience using woolywire by listing a series of woolywire tutorials I have scoured over the internet to find.  Learning new techniques for making jewelry can be tricky within itself let alone trying to also learn how to use a completely new and different product; I am hoping these tutorials will be helpful to those just learning or possibly even those who are hesitant to try woolywire for that reason!  =)

I will try to list these tutorials in order beginning with the most basic techniques, then progressing to the more difficult techniques.  Also, if anyone has any questions regarding woolywire and/or these techniques, please feel free to comment here or contact me at:




The first tutorial I would like to begin with is simply ending your woolywire.  Part of the process used for making the woolywire involves felting it which helps adhere the fiber to the wire better, although there may still be some fraying at the end of the wire after cutting it.  I sell a fraying glue called Fray Check in my shop, although there are other brands available for this as well.

For those who would like to keep it simple, the woolywire can also be wrapped directly onto the pendant as a single layer rather than twisting or braiding it:
