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.
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!
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!
