Description: Shawn made these gorgeous wire-wrapped pieces, check them out~


I had back surgery 4 weeks ago. Right before I was off work and my fiance makes jewerly. She gave me a book about wire wrapping bascics and beyond. I've always collected rocks and love working with my hands so it was instantly something that I loved. I follow basic instructions on measurments to start a piece, but then they take on a life of their own.

I'm new but some of my tips would be measure twice and cut once:), and probably use your fingers as much as you can to help with marking up your wire. I use square wire for the frame and half round for the wraps because to me it lays better and has a more uniform look on the finished piece.

Well thanks for reading about me. I really enjoy this site with all the artists opinions, tips, and tutorials.

Thanks,
Shawn

Stunning!
by: Cairns

I think that the consensus is that stunning is a truly appropriate word for your work!

I've seen a lot of wire-wrapped work that covers too much of the stone and yours doesn't. It provides a beautiful frame that adds to the beauty of the stone.

This gave me an idea I was toying with for along time.

I love going to the beach and picking up sea glass.I always thought about wrapping them.

Now I think I will give it a go.

Just one word..... STUNNING!!!
by: Debi

Your wire wrapped pendant is absolutely stunning!

I'm new to most wire work and I think this is a good example for me to remember to start out with enough wire for a project.

I would have never guessed this pendant took so much.

Great job and thanks for sharing with us.

~Peace~
