Elegant Curl Connector – Wire Jewelry Tutorial (Video)

by Rena Klingenberg.

This Elegant Curl Connector project is a free sample of some of what we do in my beginners’ wire jewelry class, Design and Make Artistic Jewelry Components.


About the “Design and Make
Artistic Jewelry Components” Class:

This is a self-paced, online video class.

It’s taught at a beginning-wireworker level.

In the Design and Make Artistic Jewelry Components class, we focus on designing and making artistic earwires, hook clasps, pendant bails, and connectors.

When you sign up for the class, you have lifetime access to all the videos and materials in it.

Along with the videos, you’ll also get helpful printable resources – checklists, cheat sheets, video transcripts, and more.

And in addition to tutorials like this Elegant Curl Connector video, the class includes:

  • A unique design resource that’s only available in this class. Even if you’re not feeling creative, you can always use this resource to come up with new ideas for artistic jewelry components.
  • An eye-opening concept for making your jewelry components more versatile.
  • 10 strategies for developing your own successful jewelry designs – plus examples of pieces I’ve developed.
  • My own simple system that makes it easy to turn design ideas into jewelry components.
  • Jewelry wire information and techniques – including my personal wireworking tips.

If you’re interested in learning my easy methods for making wire jewelry, or learning how to design and create your own unique jewelry components, this class is for you!

We’ll be covering the basics of wireworking, plus more projects like the one in the video above – and my own system for coming up with new jewelry design ideas, and then turning those ideas into successful jewelry components.

    Absolutely fabulous tutorial!! Clear, informative and easy to execute with your design help. Thanks so much for sharing!!

  2. I thought I had seen it all when it comes to wirework, but in your brief introductory video I saw techniques that I hadn’t seen before. I especially can’t wait to try the way you use your round nose pliers to form a spiral or curve. I learned to push the wire against the pliers, but you actually use the pliers to move the wire where you want it and in the shape you want. I’ll be interested in your course announcement.

  3. Great tutorial! Thank you for sharing it. I am interested in using wire components with my lampwork beads and seaglass pendants and this is a very pretty connector that I am going to try.

  4. Sherry Hooker says:

    I get so much from your tutorials. They’re simple to follow and you make them easy to understand. Will be excited to join your classes. Thank you for all you do.

  5. Pauline says:

    Thankyou, this is very cool. I too loved the way you used the round nosed pliers to make the first curve.

  7. Donna says:

    I loved this tutorial, so easy to follow and make. I think you are a good instructor. I am getting excited about your class.

  8. I have never thanked you before, or even posted here. I love your tips and ideas. I do wire work, self taught, but would benefit from the classes. Just seeing where it says how much and joining etc. I will post in here more now I have a better PC and tablet I can watch in bed lol. Reorganizing my work shed right now to be user friendly, it is time consuming and it’s also my sewing workshop. I really appreciated the open spiral lesson. I sucked at that
    a simple technique, yet so tricky. You saved me time and wire in 3 minutes God love y’all, Leanne

  9. Thank you all for your lovely comments! I appreciate your kind words.

    Leanne, how nice to hear from you, and that the tutorial was so helpful to you. I’m a self taught wireworker too – it’s still my favorite jewelry technique and the first material I think of when I need to repair or invent something. 🙂

  10. This would be an excellent pendant by itself or with something wrapped around it or in it.
