Welcome to My Blog!!

Welcome to My Blog!!

The first subject I am preparing to "blog" on involves (decorative) wire wrapping!! One of the first techniques I learned about jewelry construction was wire-wrapping!

I feel that 20 gauge wire is a bit too "flimsy". I've tried working with 18 gauge wire, but found it to be too "stiff" and unyielding! I was lucky enough to have checked-out a book (at my local library) that has been such an inspiration!! YES! You CAN work with "heavier" gauges without undertaking a "wrestling match" with the wire!

I will be busily constructing a few new creations with this wonderous new (to me) material!! I am eager to show you the results and describe (for you) It's ease of use!
