Announcement My shop has few pieces in it because for some time, hand arthritis has prevented me from doing what I love: working with wire. I had basal thumb surgery in late August, and am now in the lengthy recovery period. I am so impatient to get back to the wire! Meanwhile, you can see my past work at https://www.flickr.com/photos/sparkflight/. Follow me on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/SparkflightWire. Love to hear from you by convo if you have any ideas or questions!

Ruth knows her birds. This little copper wren has the mannerisms of the wrens that nest, raise their babies and feed in our yard. I can almost hear the little wren singing!

I love birds and this little wren reminds me so much of the wrens that feed at my feeder. He arrived on time and is so sweet and just awesome!!!

I was in complete awe the second I opened the lovely package. The necklace is far more gorgeous in person... everything I have ever looked for in a piece of jewellery.
I was the *tiniest* bit worried that this necklace would be a wee bit small and delicate, but I my mind quickly changed, and I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it; had it been made any bigger or smaller, it wouldn't have looked this perfect and elegant. It's also extremely sturdy! The quality really shows in Ruth's work... you truly get what you pay for, and this piece was beyond worth it.
Customer service with Ruth was incredible; she is such a delight to talk to, and will go out of her way to make sure you're truly confident about your purchase. This is an artist that truly cares about her work. Makes this piece that much more special to me.:)

Wired by Chance
Paramount in my life are my fabulous husband (aka my best friend) and our three adult sons, who have always been patient with my need to be creative. Usually that meant carving, drawing, or painting, but in 2006, I had to spend weeks flat on my back recovering from surgery, and I needed something artsy to do in bed. Beads rolled off to who knows where, paint spilled, I didn't know how to knit or crochet, but...I made a bird using jewelry wire! I became obsessed with creating wire sculptures, and within a couple of years, when my work occupied too much home space, I opened my Etsy shop. I named it Sparkflight, the name my oldest son chose for the business he started just before he died.
Owner, That's Me. Designer? Also Me. Maker? Me Again. Photographer? Shipper? Janitor? Me.
ABOUT THE WIRE SCULPTURES: Each begins with just 2 straight pieces of wire twisted together. I add more pieces of wire to make the structure grow, usually from top to toe. Large sculptures use hundreds of feet of wire. Obviously, all the hand-twisting is a very time-intensive -- and scratchy! -- process, but it results in sturdy, self-supporting, extremely light-weight sculptures.
ABOUT THE JEWELRY: Each piece of "wearable sculpture" is designed and created by me, using techniques that result in beautiful, comfortable jewelry that will become heirlooms. Many of my designs look lovely as small wall jewels, too.
Whether you buy or not, feel free to convo me with any comments, suggestions, or questions -- I'll answer as promptly as possible. I love working with people to make custom things, so do ask about turning your special ideas into reality.
