I am adding more of my wire weaves and wire wraps. I thought about just posting more of them in the previous post and then decided that you can just scroll through the next post to see them all. Hopefully I won’t repeat myself. As you know, I am a retired mom and grandma who spends alot of her time camping with her husband in Arizona, Utah and Idaho. When we are out ‘on the road’ I find alot of my evenings are spent wire wrapping. Now I have learned how to weave and I am having great fun experimenting with different patterns and colors. I have also recently learned how to create my own cabochons (the stones) taking them from either a rock or a slab of rock and cutting them, grinding them, shaping them and polishing them into beautiful cabs that I can then design into a pendant. At times I am lucky enough to know the name of the stone. Most of the times I do not. When I ask the other people in the lapidary shop what a certain rock is they say “A HARD ONE!!” That is soooooo much help!
If I know the stone I will tell you what it is (besides the ‘hard’ or ‘pretty’ designation). I use high quality wrapping wire that is non tarnishing – and high quality clasps and connectors. If I am going to spend 2-6 hours creating a beautiful necklace I want it to last. I do all of my own wire wrapping and weaving. The pieces are custom made and custom designed. I usually cannot repeat a design even if I tried to.
If you are interested in purchasing a necklace please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We can then figure out payment and shipping. I charge $3 to ship one necklace and earring set anywhere within the United States and $2 for each additional set. Earrings are available at no additonal charge even if not shown with the picture. I use hypoallergenic earwires. ( If you need 14k gold or sterling silver there will be an additional $3 charge)
