Wire Jewelry Inspiration for September 4, 2013

Get Inspired with Jewelry Patterns – Old and New!

Hello wire-wrapping friends! I hope that this month finds you healthy and prosperous! I thought today we would take a look back at some of the beautiful jewelry patterns that have been submitted to us, and to get our inspirational juices flowing for the future.

Wire-Wrapped Patterns:

Whether you are a beginner or an advanced wire jewelry artist, we all make wire designs by using a variety of techniques to form well-executed components, be it a full pendant or a part of an earring. Thus a lot of the following patterns use finished earrings as an example, to show how to make various components. It is up to you to take these ideas and methods and incorporate them into your own visions and designs!

We have had so many wonderful design patterns submitted to us – let’s take a look at a few of our past beauties. All of the patterns featured below are FREE patterns that you can view right now!

If you’re not familiar with our FREE patterns, they all have complete step-by-step instructions on how to create the piece as well as suggestions for what type of tools to use, and a list of supplies that you’ll need to make the same type of piece. Take a look at a few!

    I love the webbed heart pattern! and have only been able to create it once. I have had so many comments on that piece that I would really love to make more but I can’t find the right drilled stone. Can you please tell me where to find a heart or any drilled pendant stone that is side drilled correctly with holes large enough for the 3 wires???

    The directions for the Webbed Heart Necklace say to cut 2- 7″ pieces of 22 GA., but the directions say “bundle the 3 – 7″(?) pieces. Also,it says to thread the heart between the wrapped bundles…how is that possible? Are the holes in the heart that big, & if they are, wouldn’t the wrapped bundle get lost inside the heart? Thanks for any help.
