Things have been interesting in the studio the last few weeks.. I have made beads and have a "bunch" to be put up on eBay or Etsy.. but I am working on posting all the older beads first...
The next thing going on, and I'm totally enthralled is working with Wire! OMG. I'm having so much fun, and I think I really enjoy the little intricate designs it creates. I have been working from a wire magazine, a recent one. I found this design in Art Jewelry Magazine volume 8 issue 3 march 2012! What a fabulous project for anyone who wants to give it a go.
There is a bit of a learning curve, the first one I did I could not finish it correctly because I did not have enough weaving wire.. so it ended up being a knot.. its ok... but would never give as a gift or sell it..
This one was better and I did change it to be more of my design. I also used smaller weaving wire. Of course this just sends my creative brain into a frenzy! All kinds of ideas.... and so it begins... lol
