I'm participating in Lori Anderson's Bead Soup Blog Party this summer and got my wire and tools out the other day to work on some wire wrapping. I really love two books I purchased back in AZ this spring: Wire Style 2 by Denise Peck and Weave, Wrap, and Coil by Jodi Bombadier. I'm slowly working my way through the weaving book and have done a couple of items from the Peck book. I decided to buy Parawire and really love using it. I have another order ready to place so I can use several other gauges to replace my copper wire. I'm hoping that I will be able to use one of these techniques on my bead soup. Here are two wrapped rings:
I don't have a bracelet mandrel so I did the best I could shaping this woven bracelet by hand. It turned out okay and I'm sure the next one will be even better. The front:
The weaving on the band.
I really enjoy working with wire and hope to get back to it as soon as I finish rearranging my studio. Uck......
