A Create Recklessly Challenge: Now That's A Jig!

Did you get a chance to see the waxed string template trick for "Now That's A Jig!" in the Spring 2014 issue of Wirework magazine? We'd like to see what YOU do with this trick!

Be one of the first 50 people to sign up and we'll send you a small pack of waxed string to create recklessly with! Create your own template on any jig and email us a photo of your finished jewelry piece and a photo of your waxed string template. We'll post them here on the Create Recklessly blog for our readers to vote on their favorite. Didn't make it in time to become one of the first 50? No problem. Track down some waxed string at your local craft or party supply store and join the challenge.

The winner will receive the amazing "Now That's A Jig!" courtesy of the wire maestro, Brenda Schweder herself!!
