Hi! We're experimenting in the lovely world of wire-wrapping. Making up the designs is so much fun, and we're learning as much as we can about the stones that we wrap. Both of us make the jewelry. We dare you to tell the difference in our work; our moms can't!
We haven't posted much new work because, unfortunately, not much new work is being created. There are still a few things going on, though! Throughout the past year, there are about 20 new pendants that haven't been photographed.
The first big thing that will happen is: a new camera/lens! Since there is a much larger internet audience than in-person audience, I want to be able to show off our work.

Tonight we hit one hundred thousand deviation views! We want to take a moment to thank everyone who's stopped by, everyone who's given us a :+fav: (even if you never look at the piece again :P ), and everyone who's taken the time to :+devwatch: and give some kind or encouraging words. It's wonderful to have such a supportive community all the time. It's also great to see the fabulous work that other people do here! We've seen a number of fellow wire workers 'grow up', as well as tons of other amazing things.
Wit hope to see you around for years to come!

All of the wire wrapped jewelry that I've made has either been unpolished or touched up with a rouged buffing/polishing cloth. I try not to leave claw marks, but it's impossible to avoid marking the wire completely. It would take a lot of hand polishing to get any sort of marks out the cloth mostly just takes off a layer of dirt/oxidation to make a piece look brighter.
I decided to try making my pendants more professional by giving them a real polishing. Someone recommended radial bristle discs by 3M a while back, and now I'm actually going to try them out. I just got a Dremel and I ordered some 6 micron and 1 micron radial bristle di
Last winter I contacted to about wrapping a piece of lapis for me. You replied to say you were busy until June. I have been trying to contact you for 2 weeks, but have been unsuccessful. Are you still in business? Please e-mail me if you are still working. Thank you.
