Never used craft wire before? You’ll find that colored craft wire is amazing for trying out new designs, because:

  • You can make jump rings & filigree components in dozens of colors
  • The wire has a copper core, so it’s very flexible and fun to experiment with
  • Get the look of steel, silver, and copper without tarnish
  • Get the look of gunmetal and antique copper without liver of sulfur or patinas
  • It’s low-cost, so you don’t have to worry about trying new ideas.

    I’m a wire-wrapper, and what inspires me is the rocks themselves–especially raw rocks that I collect myself. Somehow, it’s as if there’s something a stone just wants to be. For the last few weeks I’ve been meditating on one of my most special rocks, a large flake of pink Idaho opal I picked up out in Owyhee County. It wants to be a “statement piece”, but I just have so many ideas it’s hard to choose. I’m sure about banding it with multiple strands of square wire, some twisted, in a heavy gauge, but unsure if I want to foof it up with any add-ons like pearls or crystals, or if I want to make the stone itself a stand alone star of the piece. Maybe I’ll try some of that craft wire and sort of experiment a little, then re-do it in precious metal.
