Wire Wrapped Jewelry
I enjoy wire wrapping and teaching it. There are many ways to wire wrap. Recently I taught a class at the studio encouraging the artists to experiment with wrapping wire heart shapes with beads to make pendants. This technique is very different from my usual style of wire wrapping, and I wanted all of us to explore. There are so many options.
I believe that experimentation is a process that sparks ideas and encourages us to try new things and focus on discovery rather than what we did wrong. Sometimes the most difficult part of trying a new thing is that it does not look very good to us the first few times. I always tell my students that this is ok. It does take several tries to get used to a new technique and then begin to make it your own. What new technique have you tried lately?
