I was cruising through Etsy to see what was out there and discovered this terrific wire wrap artist. Her stuff is amazing and very reasonable priced considering the work. I was hoping she did tutorials, but she is so busy making stuff (plus that day job) she can't keep up. Check out her stuff at http://twistedsisterarts.blogspot.com
When I e-mailed her she was very responsive and seemed like a great person willing to help out others who love to create. I have been reluctant to try bold crazy designs because I didn't want to "waste" sterling wire, but found out there is a pretty good enameled copper wire with silver coat that is viable. Just bought some from Beadalon even though I promised myself to stop spending money on materials. Anyway the wire is called Artistic Wire and will let you know how I like it. Sometimes the coating is too thin, but this is supposed to be better because they put the enamel over it. I bought a really small gauge which will be new for me also because I am used to big and bold..
Raining like crazy here so I am off to organize the Shiva Shop and get out some books to see what I can create today. Hoping to transfer some of those basket weaving skills into new jewelry.
