Wire wrapped jewellery is a method of crafting jewellery by hand with wire and a few simple hand tools. It involves wrapping, weaving, and twisting wires together to create wearable jewellery. Join Paul as he takes students through the steps of creating lovely handcrafted jewellery with every piece being one-of-a-kind! You are required to supply your own wire and stones (available at Michaels). Outline will be given out during registration.
Paul Moore is an avid beach glass collector, wire wrapper and jewellery designer. He and his wife can often be seen walking Dominion Beach searching for special pieces of beach glass. About three years ago, on the encouragement of a friend who is a wire wrapper, he began to use the glass they collected, incorporating it into beach glass jewellery. They have been selling the jewellery under the name Sea and Sand for the past three years. Mostly self-taught, his designs have a national and international appeal and Sea and Sand has customers locally, nationally and internationally.
Paul has taken introductory and intermediate jewellery making courses at the Cape Breton Center for Craft & Design. As a result, along with wire wrapping, Paul’s interest in other forms of jewellery has expanded. He has extended his interests to the design and production of copper and silvery jewellery as well. Paul is a member of the Metal Arts Guild of Nova Scotia.
