    Echo Leigh D. I have been enjoying your wirework. Well done on all of your designs. Is the spiral your signature?
    From one wire wrangler to another, well done!

    Thank you Leigh & seashellsally :)
    I suppose spirals are my signature as they feature a lot in stuff I’ve made. I’ve just started making jewellery again after nearly a years break, partly inspired by seeing all the designs on here. I love the whole process of working with silver & copper wire & the freedom you have to create your own designs. I’m in the middle of making a quartz & wirework bracelet which I will post on here soon!
    I’m not fantastic at it but I’m slowly teaching myself different things with the help of books & magazines :)
