I LOVE TO WIRE JEWELRY! It has a very calming affect on me and although it is hard on the eyes, I still love to do it.
All of my wired pieces are made from copper, brass, sterling or argentium wire. Most of them are 20g, 22g and 28g wire. I love adding beads or other objects I've bought or found.
This necklace reminds me of an octopus that captured a little blue ball. It was wired with 22g and 28g brass wire and then dipped in a patina to bring out the details. It is 1" wide by 1 1/4" long and hangs 13" from a brass chain with a brass hook and eye clasp.
This necklace is made from brass wire and then sealed but may tarnish if not stored properly. An anti-tarnish pad comes with the piece and should be kept together to prevent tarnishing. A soft jewelry cleaning cloth should be sufficient if needed.
