Last week, I went down to Will-O-Wisp Beads & Boutique to take part in a wire-work class with shop owner Kira Nelson. She taught how to make bracelets using 18 gauge and 24 gauge wire with 6 mm beads. The pattern is so versatile; using different colored wire and various type of beads, each bracelet is unique. I spent today making bracelets using Czech crystals, and I'm very pleased with the results. I hope to build up my inventory for when fair season resumes. Thanks, Kira!
I'm relatively new to jewelry making, having created my first pieces in 2009. Putting together beads and wire to bring something new and pretty into the world feeds my soul. I hope you find something here that speaks to you.
