I LOVE TO WIRE JEWELRY!  There - I said it in all caps so you know it's true!  It has a very calming affect on me.  It might be a little hard on the eyes, but I still love to do it.


All of my wired pieces are made from copper, brass, sterling silver 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 a cocoon that is holding a little surprise on the inside which in this case is a BEAUTIFUL bead I purchased at a bead show.  This piece was wired with 22g and 28g copper wire and then dipped in a patina to really bring out the details.  It is 1 1/2" wide by 2" long and hangs 15" from a brown leather cord with a copper lobster claw clasp.

  • This necklace is made from copper wire and then sealed so it should not tarnish if cared for 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.
