This is probably the most complex wire wrapping tutorial in the world at the moment :D
I tried to use as many techniques in it as possible so you get the most for your money.
Each and every step is explained in detail and accompanied by closeup photos meaning you will learn how to make all of the elements, all the weaves, how to do the neato part with the beads, how to construct 3D objects... EVERYTHING! \o/ :D
And then you'll be able to combine them in any way you want and make pretty much anything.
You will get 57 pages of detailed instructions - over 180 photos in 132 steps (4 PDF files).
Sounds a bit scary but anyone can do it - all you need is patience and this tutorial
Skill level: i'm gonna go with advanced but you might find it to be less difficult, it all depends on what you are used to making :) I just taught this tutorial during a wire wrapping retreat and all the students successfully completed it, even the beginners. My advice is work slowly, be patient and don't give up.
If you buy the tutorial and decide to make and sell the project pendant you are free to do so just note in the description of your pendant that it was made following this tutorial.
On the other hand you are not allowed to multiply, share, copy or distribute in any way the tutorial or any of its components (i have spent over 2 months writing it so please respect this last part about not distributing/copying/etc. it :) thank you!). If you buy thisany of my tutorials with the intention of teaching the subject matter to others each one of your students is obligated to buy a tutorial of their own from me. Not from any other source. Buying a tutorial does not provide the right to distribute the contents of it in any form (written, verbal or otherwise). If you want to teach one of my tutorials your students or you need to buy a copy of the tutorial for every person that attends.
Also, be 100% sure you want this tutorial because I do not do refunds for tutorials.
There was some confusion lately so just to clarify - this is NOT a physical book, you are not buying a piece of finished jewelry, this is a digital tutorial in form of 4 PDF files. After you buy the tutorial you will get an instant download link from Etsy where you can download all the files. If something goes wrong please let me know and i will send it to you manually.
From the tutorial:
Prior knowledge needed:
• Advanced wire wrapping
• Basic hammering
• Basic filing
• Oxidizing (optional)
• Flex shaft use / final polishing (optional)
IMPORTANT: The quantities noted here may vary because the length of wire you will need to wrap this pendant depends on: pliability of the wire, how tightly/neatly you wrap, if/how much you veer off course. If you want to be extra safe you won't run out of wire close to the end cut slightly longer pieces.

PayPal, within 2 days from the purchase. If you need more time please let me know before buying (I am flexible but need to know what is going on :D ).

I also offer the following option: you pay a non refundable down payment of 10-20% of the item value, save up the rest within 2-4 months (depending on items value) and pay in one payment
Yes, i can make them :) You can give me detailed instructions re. the design of the piece and set the price range. The only new thing here is that i will from now on need a non refundable down payment before i start making your piece.
RESERVING A PIECE
Yes, you can reserve a piece. The news is that i will from now on need a non refundable down payment in this case too. The percentage needed for the down payment depends on the piece selected.
Explanation of the non refundable down payments: if there is no down payment people order or reserve a piece and some never come back to buy it. Most of them do but some don't and those are becoming more and more numerous lately. I think my collection of never sold custom orders is quite full and i have also had sufficient amount of financial damage from telling people who wanted to buy an item right away 'this item is reserved' and then never hearing back from the reservee again. I think if a person is really serious about buying something a certain percentage of the total amount as a down payment should not be the problem :)
Returns & exchanges
Returns are possible but not recomended due to possible high costs (covered by the buyer).
Unfortunately i cannot be held responsible for items lost or damaged by the post; no refunds will be issued in those cases.

I do my best to photograph, describe and present my jewelry as accurately as possible and will answer all additional questions you might have.
