“Urban Funk Necklace”
By Norma Melton
Make up to a 24” Necklace
Skill Level: Dexterity is necessary & wire wrapping experience is helpful.
Create the edgy, industrial-chic necklace with WireKnitZ® wire mesh and learn how to make organically manipulated corrugated wire cold connections. Color photographs and detailed written instructions will demonstrate each phase of making this necklace and various closure options, cleaning, and patinating tips, keeping your Artwear safe and sound.
The kit contains:
- 2 – 9 inch #4004 Stainless Steel Coarse Knit WireKnitZ® knitted wire mesh – I recommend using #4004 Stainless Steel WireKnitZ® for the clasp eye because it is an uncoated, sturdy bare wire.

- A tutorial that includes detailed written and photographed instructions.
