▪ Funky Wire Necklace ▪

Express yourself! Fun, vibrant and colorful or natural earth tones or a pastel palette. Starting with your favorite beads, you decide the theme and then build a funky necklace using a variety of wireworking techniques in this 6 hour workshop.

You'll twist, coil and manipulate copper wire, adding your beads to create a one-of-a-kind piece of wire art jewelry that truly expresses your individuality. If you prefer, you may use Sterling silver wire to use in your design.

Skill Level

It is recommended that students have basic jewelry making skills such as those taught in Basic Wire Jewelry Techniques I. However, all skill levels are welcome.


Important: There is no need for you to go out and purchase any tools. All tools necessary for completing the project will be available at the workshop. However, some training venues have a smaller tool inventory than others, which may mean sharing.

For that reason, I recommend you bring your own small hand tools (i.e. pliers, cutters, favorite hammer, metal shears, etc.) if you have them. (Note: I usually have quality tools available for purchase at the workshop.) Contact me if you have any questions.

The following is a list of tools that we'll be using during the workshop.

  • Round nose pliers
  • Flat nose pliers
  • Chain nose pliers
  • Flush or semi-flush cutters that will cut up to 12 gauge wire
  • Ball peen or chasing hammer
  • Mandrels of different sizes (knitting needles and round writing pens work well for this)
  • Needle files
  • 6 inch ruler
  • Soft tape measure
  • Steel bench block
  • Sharpie® or other indelible pen
  • Hand towel
  • Polishing cloth
  • #000 Fine steel wool


Each training venue sets its own workshop fees. You'll find contact information for each venue on my Class Schedule page.

In addition to the workshop fee, a separate materials fee will be paid at the workshop to cover all materials needed to complete the project. The materials fee includes a full-color step-by-step written tutorial.

"Great class...Thanks, Stacy. I'll be back for more!"
