Third Wire Wrapping Class

I did a very simple wrap at this week's class as a birthday lunch for a friend made me late, so I had less time. I omitted all the wrapping at the...

Second Try

So I went back to the wire wrapping class and I decided to see if I could do another pendant with two beads this time.

First Effort Wire Wrapping

Easy Pieces

While on the road I quickly made two necklaces and some bracelets to wear to events I was attending. Later in the trip I gave one necklace as a...
Components: The necklaces are both mixed glass beads strung on waxed linen from Lima Beads, in a color to go with the chosen scheme. They both have barrel clasps, attached with knots inside the clasps. The bracelets are all simple glass bead stretch bracelets.

Steam Punk Love

Friends of mine were having a Steam Punk show and opening at a gallery and I decided to design and wear a necklace to go with the theme. I had a...
Components: This is made of junk from my stash (the big heart, old bail, compass, three chains, an old key, a couple of beads, jump rings) and some finds from the Restore (Habitat for Humanity) where I always find interesting stuff. The middle drop has some beads, a bearing wheel, part of a door stop and a clear glass drop from my focal collection. I've also used an old token, a big gear, the front of a broken locket, and parts from several earrings. I like to buy jars of junk jewelry at thrift stores and paw through them for gold. I mostly find junk, but I have fun.
