My Occupation Retired
My Bio After retirement, I remodeled the horse barn into a workshop/studio and began making jewelry. Later Elesa started working with me and teaching wire wrapping classes which led us to publish our book. I also helped Claire set up her studio and then got Brenda started by selecting some tools or making them for all to have and use in their studios. Later Elesa moved to Huntsville and I started teaching advanced level classes in jewelry making for our gem and mineral society. I have moved my woodworking equipment into the barn to make more space available in the studio so I can make "Tools You didn't think you needed" for wire wrappers, jewelry makers, cold connections projects and lapidary.
This book includes special tools made for wire wrapping and since then I have made more than twenty five other very useful time saving tools that are modifications of available tools or tools I have made in the shop.
Hope you will share this with your friends and send me you comments.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
Do you have a suggestion?
Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
Wirewrapping is an easy form of jewelry making that only requires a small work space , some pliers and wire to get started making your own beautiful jewlery.
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
This book contains three of Elesa's most popular projects with easy to follow directions and high resolution photos you can enlarge to see the smallest details not possible with the print version of the book.
