I love everything that Saffron creates. I don't know how she makes all these beautiful pieces from wire. They are all works of art. They are whimsical, creative fun that we get to wear. If you are looking for something in jewelry that is different, than you found it here. Love this shop!

This is such a great piece. Especially as there are so many wolf in sheep clothing in the world today. Have to be aware. This brooch will make people think about who to trust. Love it!

About

Other Worlds

I’m Saffron Johns, 34 years old and grew up in the beautiful mountains of Wales. I moved from the UK to live in Bulgaria about ten years ago.

I always knew I wanted to do something creative and went to Hereford Art College receiving a BA in Contemporary Applied Arts in 2005. I create my work mainly by crocheting coloured wire and add gemstones and beads. I love coming up with new ideas and I am always thinking about the next unusual, cute designs and characters.

Thank you; It's truly wonderful the amazing people you meet through creating and I am very grateful for all those who support what I do.

Additional policies and FAQs
ABOUT COLOURED WIRE

The type of wire I use is mainly enameled copper wire, not only is it colourful, permanent, vibrant and shiny and comes in an array of colours and gauges but has the bonus that the enamel coating protects the copper wire from tarnishing and will not fade over time.

I also use gold and silver plated copper wire and sterling silver wire, the type of wire I use will be clearly stated in the description.

CARING FOR COLOURED WIRE

cleaning coloured wire
I find the best way to clean my wire sculptures and jewelery is to use a soft brush like a paintbrush to carefully remove any dust and dirt. If a piece is in need of more attention after that I suggest using a damp soft cloth and carefully polish the piece. Coloured wire can be washed using water, however if the piece remains wet for a long time it will ruin the piece so never soak wire and dry the wire piece out immediately after washing.

Plated and sterling wire should not be cleaned in this way! There are various methods and products for cleaning plated and sterling wire that can be found by searching the web.

Shaping
The wire I use is often thin, normally 0.2mm and can easily be gently bent and curled back into shape if needed. However wire is delicate and repeated heavy bending and the like can damage a piece so do take care.
