My name is Valeriy Vorobev.

I live in Russia (the Republic of Komi) in a small northern town of Pechora. The city of Pechora stands on the bank of a large river with the same name Pechora.

It’s a severe place, summer is short, winter is long and cold. But despite this, our people are wonderful, with a big, broad and kind soul.

The Ural Mountains are located right next to the city (by our standards). I’ve been there – amazing places with its harsh beauty. It made an indelible impression on me with its silent beauty. The Ural mountains are rich in their bowels. In the Urals, there are a lot of precious and ornamental stones. Since ancient times, people living throughout the Urals have been engaged in the processing of gems and have created unique decorations.

The Urals are famous for its talented people. And it seems to me that this is quite natural. When there is such a splendor around you, you involuntarily join in to the beautiful and you want to create, create beautiful things yourself. Nature has created a certain level of beauty, below which you can no longer fall in your work.

Personally, I worked all my life in different directions. I’ve been decorating for twenty years. Very useful experience, when for several years, under the guidance of very good masters, I learned to process stones and work with metals.

If you've ever thought about learning how to wire stones to make jewelry, but didn't know how to start, you've come to the right place. Making jewelry out of wire and stones is actually much easier than it sounds. By learning this technique, you can create beautiful and unique jewelry using just a few basic materials. In fact, all you need to get started is a stone, some wire, and two types of pliers. You don't need solders and burners! We will not solder anything!

I have been making jewelry all my life. I have been making wire jewelry for over 20 years and I don’t want to keep this knowledge to myself. That’s why I make tutorials about wire jewelry making. Thus I can share everything I learned with you.

I have several thousand students all over the world. But unfortunately I do not speak other languages ​​and I have to use the help of translators. Not knowing the languages do not stop me from creating educational web sites, providing free lessons and make stuff for internet shops in different languages. You can find me on Facebook, Pinterest, YouTube, Instagram and Twitter. You can find my textbooks on such Internet shops as Etsy and Amazon.

If you are a newbie in wire work, I will lead you through the details of how to master this technique. You can use it to create beautiful jewelry pices and accessories. Experienced craftsmen will also be interested in my lessons. I will show you my unique designs. You might like it and want to do exactly the same. Thus you are able to find something new for your works.
