WELCOME!
...to our jewelry design site! We are happy to provide this site to share our design and jewelry making tips. This site features "quick & easy" jewelry making with E6000 glue! You'll be creating gorgeous pieces in no time at all :) We have used E6000 for years. It is a very strong "liquid solder". After you master the basics, we also encourage you to try wire wrapping! Filigrees are easy to wire wrap as you can just "sew" pieces together through the openings in the filigress.

As illustrated in the above examples, filigree wrapping adds a whole new dimension to your creations. You can wrap stones, old keys, and those plain brass stampings that just need a little embellishment to bring them to life. Visit the "Filigree Wrapping" page for instuctions on how to filigree wrap.
