Crazy Little Things


About this design:

Since these were made with the same materials in the pendant, mostly, I just grouped them. Copper wire, copper colored alumiumn flat wire, and copper tubes.

    My favorite is the pendant in your big picture. It looks dramatic and tribal. The other pieces look happy, so that’s good, too.

    These are so frickin’ cool!!!! I really really like the flat wire you wrapped into the curlycues!! That has such a cool 3-D look!! Did you have to heat it first to be able to bend it like that?

    :) Thanks everyone. The flat wire is aluminum, so it is very soft. Curling it tight light that makes it work-harden, and of course I pound on the sides with a rubber mallet to finish/hold a shape (when I can). I am really such a novice at this wire wrap, basically doing my own thing or learning techniques from books/tuts. I can’t get that wire “weave” style to look like anything I’d sell! So for now I stay simple. Thanks for all the nice words, especially from ladies who’s work I so admire!
