Orpheus in Wire

I love the simple beauty in nature. The colors and shapes in natural stones. I love the way you can capture these objects and suspend them around your neck.
My mother has an ammonite necklace, that I thought was amazing. Imagine being able to carry around a fossil, and wrap wire around it to make it into jewelry. When I saw that necklace I figured you could wire wrap just about anything, and turn it into a piece of art.
The only thing I didn't like was the cost of the precious metals that most use to wire wrap. What is the point of wanting to share these amazing stones, but having to charge a fortune to cover the cost of the wire?
I have seen some beautiful jewelry, but have not been able to afford it myself. This is why I use craft wire in all of my jewely. You too can have something beautiful, unusual, and completely one of a kind without having to pay hundreds of dollars. I just want to be able to share my passion for wire wrapping with everyone.
Now I just have to find enough time (and space on my dining room table! ) to complete new things. Mom first....artist second. However I have a notebook full of ideas waiting to come to life.

    I am a wife, a mother, and an avid wire wrapper. I took a class to learn how to turn sea glass I had collected into pendants. That is when the obsession began. Nothing is off limits for my wrapping. Lose a button and you will find it covered in wire!

Please note that all of my item are hand made using wire, semi precious stones, and sea glass. All of the items are one of a kind and cannot be duplijcated. I do take requests and may be able to make you something similar, or help you make something using certain materials you request, depending on the materials I have on hand.

Handbags and diaper bags can be made upon request depending on what you need. For example I have made diaper bags with purple pricesses, dragons, winnie the pooh, fall colors, baby blue color but not babyish. Let me know and we can maybe work something out.
