Developing jewellery techniques – forging and twisting with Sarah Macrae

Ref: SLW08156




Introduce subtlety and depth to your designs by forging wire with hammers to make it flow from thick to thin, gradually changing shape from one plane to the next. Look at the extensive historical range of twisted wires documented by Herbert Maryon and experiment with different sections and combinations of wire to form rich decorative patterns.
