i took a wire wrapped ring class at the end of January and since then, i've become obsessed with wire wrapping! i've always loved those sparrow and nest egg jewelry designs, and i've worked hard to make them my own! here are my newest "Nest Egg" designs - the first is made with opals and a sweet sparrow, the other is tarnish resistant sterling silver artistic wire and a sterling silver chain! so perfect for spring! the response so far has been wonderful - keep ordering them and i'll keep making them! there are many options for "eggs" - i have lots of Swarovski pearls, semiprecious gems, and gorgeous glass! I also have different types of artistic wire available.
from the wire wrapping, came an idea for my "love knots". one of my wonderful buyers had seen my "nest egg" jewelry and asked if i could make one WITHOUT the eggs in it! of course, even though i wasn't sure yet how to do it, i took on the challenge... and the rest is history! She got her ring - and I got the inspiration for a fabulous new line of jewelry!!!!!!!!!!!!
drop me a line and let me know what you think - or even better yet, drop by my etsy shop and take a look! is it worth the ripped up shape that my hands are in right now? LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!
p.s. i'm working on my next artist feature as we speak and a design for the TradeAHolics' team shirts! so watch this space!
