I have to say that free form wire bending is one of my favorite things to do. I love how the metal moves, and to feel where it is from.
These Sterling Charm Holders are simple and elegant enough to wear alone, or to add a few of your favorite charms...they will easily hold up to 5 charms. You simply hook the charm onto the centre of the spiral, and swirl the charm into place.
The first one I made was for myself, about 20 years ago, as a place to put my rings while I was working making jewelry and stained glass work. But then the idea caught on, and a few other artisans I worked with wanted one...and I have been making them ever since.
I do make multiples of these, but each one is hand bent, and no two are alike. I do not use jigs.
I make them with .040 9.25 Sterling dead soft wire, which I hand stretch, cut, free form bend, and then hammer. You can see the hammer marks on all of my free form jewelry, I angle the hammer on purpose to let them come out. When the light plays over them, they will shimmer and reflect the colours around you.
This listing is for One large charm holder.
Approx 1 1/2" to 2" tall X 1" wide
I suggest a medium weight chain if you will be adding many charms. (not included)
Although we can add in a cotton cord that is also strong enough, at no charge. Just let us know you would like one.
