We have some festive Christmas angels for you today. These lovely cherubs are easy to make with the right tools. We suggest a jig board. If you do not have one on hand, you can use pliers. WigJig jig boards are the perfect tool for the beginner or jewelry designer that wants to create Soft Flex Craft Wire jewelry or patterns consistently. Jig boards provide a template that your wire follows. Make some wonderful handmade jewelry and ornaments this season!
Holiday Crafts and Ornaments with Sara Oehler
Making holiday ornaments is affordable, fun and easy. In this video, Sara Oehler shows how to make wings using Soft Flex Craft Wire on a WigJig. The wings can be used to make a Christmas Angel that can become a pendant for jewelry or an ornament to decorate for the holidays. Using a WigJig allows you to make two wings that look more consistant than using pliers. WigJigs are durable wire jigs that can be used to create the same shape over and over. Imagine all of the different winged creatures you can create - bats, butterflies, birds, dragon flies, etc.
We love the holidays. The end of the year is always so fun. So many wonderful holidays to celebrate. It is a great time for jewelry making and crafts.
