Simple Wire Key Tutorial (photos only) by magpie-poet Simple Wire Key Tutorial (photos only) by magpie-poet
Since I don't have much in the way of illustrative skill so can't contribute art ot the final projects, I'm giving key and tree pendant as incentives for :iconanimus-panthera: Losing Altitude Kickstarter www.kickstarter.com/projects/a…. It's already reached it's main goal, so the art books are a go-grab one and take a look at the stretch goals.

While I was making what felt like a zillion keys (only 6 really) I figured I might as well take pictures of the steps. So it's not quite a tutorial yet, the right words just aren't coming, but I haven't been able to expand my class enough to include it yet either.

Thought you guys might have fun with it as is. Play, modify, credit/link me if you use it and please let me know so I can link to your projects on here :)

Very fine work, keep at it. All steps put together like this is very helpful, but knowing wire info, gauge size and amount needed, would be a great help, yet not something one can't figure out. I have several sub-catagories- free tutorials, free turorials, etc- so I pin you under a few groups as I think the more you are seen by others who follow my pins the better-Keep at it!

:glomp: I know you keep claiming to the contrary, but I'm sure you'd be fine with wire, I just don't want to take you away from felt!

 :D I wish! I'm quite happy with now being able to make my dolls' glasses and earrings in the first 2 or 3 tries! It used to be 5 or 6! :victory:

Good, I'm always worried about if words make it more confusing or not, so did this for now :)

Cool. My trial student's response to this and the rings was this is too much thinking, you do it for me and I'll tell my daughter I made it. *facepalm*
