Wire Wrapped Rings 4/29/09

I used to be intimidated by wire. I'd see beautiful jewelry creations made of wire and I'd be in awe of them. I'd think to myself that I could never do that! I finally decided to take a class on wire wrapping and that's all it took! Thanks to Tracy Stanley, I'm totally hooked on wire!

I've found that wire is very forgiving to work with. If you make a mistake, just straighten out the wire with your pliers and try again! With my new obsession with wire I've been making beads, connections, clasps, name it.

My most recent focus has been on making rings. I LOVE big chucky, funky wire rings. I only wish I had more fingers so I could wear all of them all the time. Check them out and let me know what you think.
