I"ve always wanted to do this. Finally wire wrapping!

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
