About

Hi,

I'm Elvira. I live in a beautiful little Bavarian town called Dietenhofen.
My second favorite pastime is making wire jewelry ( all time
favorite would be spending time with my two beautiful girls and my wonderful husband!) During those long, cold and snowy winter months you need something to occupy yourself, so I am glad, I have something I enjoy doing!So now I have decided to turn my hobby into a business! Check out the results!

But I was not always interested in wire. I started with beading and that was about 3 years ago. My wonderful and very talented mother in law always made some beautiful beading pieces and I wanted to try it for myself. But after a while it got boring and I have noticed,
that I had more fun making the wire clasps. So I've decided to try some wire wrapping…

I love wire because it can take many shapes. Crazy, beautiful, modern, nostalgic, dark, cheerful, artistic, simple and so many more. Wire helps me communicate my mood, no matter what it is at the moment.
Beads help underline and accentuate the piece. Brighten it up, make it dark. They add the certain something to it... Make it shine
Every time I create a piece, I let my artistic instincts and feeling guide me. That is why no piece is the same. Each piece is unique, one of a kind it its own way. I was not taught wire wrapping so I had to teach myself. It took me some time to get where I am right now. And I hope to learn more as I go along.


I mostly use copper wire in different colors. I believe that copper is a beautiful metal. I love its warm reddish golden color. It was used for jewelry for thousands of years. It is an excellent energy conductor! Sends and amplifies thoughts, healing energy, and gem electrical energy into wearer's energy field. Because of this, it encourages the physical/emotional bodies to find alignment. On top of that it has its health benefits.
