A little background on wire sculped jewelry making.

Wire Jewelry is a beautiful way to express artistic creativity.  It has been around for centuries and

is a totally accepted addition to your jewelry fashions. Wire jewely has become much more popular in the last few years and is a wonderful way to use your beads and cabachons or even set precious stones.  The possiblities are ENDLESS !

Wire jewelry was around way back in Egypt and used in the construction of many historic pieces of jewelry. It is a method of cold joining and can be made from just about any metal.  Wire jewelry making is as unique as the artist and can be used to set just about any shape of item.  Lots of people use it for free form rocks and crystals and combined with elemental metals such as copper it has been used in healing arts and more.

Wire Jewelry is made with many types of wire. As more and more people find this art form, more types of wire are being developed to support the craft.

Nickel, copper,brass, jewelers brass (Merlins gold),Silver-both regular Sterling Silver and the newer Argentium Silver which resists tarnishing. Also Silver Filled is becoming very popular due to the higher cost of silver these days. Stainless steel wire is also popular but much harder to work with.

 

Our wire jewelry is made with Sterling Silver or 14K Gold Filled wire as well as copper, steel, stainless steel.

Each piece is made with love and care for a one of a kind piece of jewelry that is classy enough to be handed down from generation to generation.  Many pieces have stayed in families for a 100 years or more to be passed from generation to generation.  

All pieces will last a very long time with normal wear and care.  

Many pieces are made with gemstones, both faceted gemstones and cabachon gemstones as well as agates which are a work of art in themselves.

 

Other pieces are made from my own handcrafted lampwork glass beads or cabachons and still others are made with cameos.  

The Cameos are either acrylic, glass or shell.  

All of these types of cameos are accepted as making a unique and classy piece of jewelry.

My jewelry has been displayed in local Jewelry stores as well as shows.
