How To Make Wire Wrapped Jewelry:7 Free Tutorials
I am absolutely amazed at some of the awesome wire wrapped jewelry I've been seeing lately online. Of course, I tried to get out there and see what freebies I could find but these free tutorials were a little bit harder to gather up as I noticed many are selling their wire wrapped jewelry tutorials for as little as 2.00. I still figured I could get a few free ones and so I did manage to get at least 7 of them all together in one place and a bonus one for a lovely DIY wire clasp. All of the sites I found these on are amazing so please do try to check them out. If you are a craft nut like me, you will be glad you did. I really do hope you enjoy these free wire wrapped jewelry tutorials!

Tutorial #4 Wire Wrapped Earrings
Wow.. look at these beautiful dangling wire wrapped earrings I found at wire wrapped designs with a free video tutorial by craftybabyhope. They do look a bit intimidating as beautiful as they are.

Tutorial #7 Wire Wrapped Vintage Button Rings
Have some vintage buttons lying around that you don't know what to do with? Make vintage button wire wrapped rings by Rachel at Holy Craft! You have to admit, aren't these so cute? You could make a bunch of these up and sell them in your craft booth at the flea market or make them as gifts. I just love the look of these rings.
Bonus: Garden Gate Jewelry Clasp
I know this isn't a finished piece of jewelry but it is used to make a finished piece and couldn't pass up sharing this as it's just such a pretty handmade clasp. I found this very nice tutorial at Art Bead Scene. It's a great tutorial and very easy to follow. Make sure to have a look around this blog, it's a very nice one and very inspirational.
