Carnation

Project Info:

Level: All Levels

Estimated time: 3-4 Hours

Project and Sample by Kate Richbourg

Pretty in pink, just like a carnation. This Valentine’s Day, Kate is taking her inspiration from the classic flower and a classic symbol of love: the heart!

There’s something so satisfying about playing with wire. Kate’s signature wire wrapping style is shown off project! Make your own wire heart just like Kate’s…allow your creativity to flow through your fingertips and into your wire…form a base and wrap around and around, this way and that, and add beads along the way. Soon you’ll see the shape emerge and have a finished product that’s just….sigh! Perfection!

Please join us as our worldwide community gathers on Facebook at 10:30am Pacific Time on February 14, 2018. It’s so much fun to go live with us and bead together! After the live broadcast the video will be available in the Video Tab above.

Project Map

Please Note: The "Perfect Crimp" clasps have been discontinued, so we suggest choosing a different clasp (we suggest Medium Round and Round) and crimping it in place using Wire Guards, Crimp Tubes, and Crimp Covers. Follow the instructions outlined in the Skill Builder: Using Crimps, Guardians, and Covers.
