More Changes, More Free Tutorials!

I'm so excited! I get to do two things at once here! I know you read the word 'FREE', (and we'll get to that) but as we all know, nothing really good is ever really free - so here is your payment: You have to look at eye candy, and you have to read about my new Celtic Braid Tutorial available at

So here is the eye candy part.This is the tutorial intro pic -the details for the project are in the Etsy shop. ;^)

And here are some interesting things I've made with the weave!

OK! You have paid your dues, now here is the 'FREE', part!

I want give you the opportunity to get my free tutorials, AND I started a new blog. The links below will re-direct you there to download them!!! You don't have to buy anything, or sign up for anything. Just enjoy them and let me know if you like them. Heck, I won't even go that far - drop me a line, if you feel like it! But I really want you to be successful in working with wire. It is the most fun I've ever had while I worked, so I'll just pass it on.

All of these tutorials will help you create those little details that make wirewrapping so satisfying. The best tools you can acquire are imagination and knowledge!

Thanks for reading! With gratitude, Perri

I love that braid, and as I'm Scottish with a Welsh heritage the Celtic style really appeals to me. Definately something I will be looking to learn in the near future. I have some of your tutorials from jewelry and love them. The instructions are so concise and easy to follow.

Thank you for all of this valuable information. I learned a lot! I never would have guessed that a gauge tool works the way you so nicely described.
