I’m learning to work with jewelry wire. Here are two recent (beginner) projects.
On the top a charm holder made of 14 gauge sterling silver and five charms. You can learn to make the charm holder at the Bead Club in Woodinville. It’s a very good use of three hours.
The second piece is a bracelet made of 20 gauge silver filled wire. It’s a variation on the Spiral Bracelet project in Chandler and Ritchey’s Getting Started Making Wire Jewelry and More. The original has a much tighter coil in the center and a coarser texture pounded into the wire. I prefer the looser feel of this one. I’m going to try something similar in heavier wire. This one is too delicate as it stands (sits?)
Also I promise to get some other colors of fabric for taking photographs. All this dusty rose is starting to make a little queasy.
