About

Wild about Wire!

Wire is so versatile. It is just begging to be molded and twisted into a new shape. It is one of my favorite mediums to work with. I would work with other materials such as string and ribbon but I kept going back to wire.
I have been making jewelry for 6 years. A small starter kit given to me by my mother-in-law for Christmas. Just thin wire and beads to make little rings and earrings. It was fun, and it made me curious what else I could make. I started messing around with wire and then moved on to stringing necklaces and using simple bead patterns, but it got so boring and mundane, I was no longer having fun.
Then I went back to working with wire, discovering the different gauges and colors. The possibilities are endless. I love to see what is possible!
I work out of the guest room in our house. Just a small room I use for crafts. My desk is in front of a small window and I sit there, sometimes for hours at a time, creating earrings and bracelets and necklaces. I love my time in what I call my studio!
People liked what I was making and kept telling me I should open up an Etsy store. I didn't even know what that was. Then, I showed some of my designs to a gift shop manager, just hoping she would give me some insight. She offered to do a test sale and bought 43 of my pieces! I was elated! It was then I made the decision to open my store online.
I love to create and find inspiration in colors and textures. I love working with glass beads and crystals. I love the sparkle and shine. I also love the earthy quality of wood and find ways to incorporate that into my designs.
Now I twist wire into words and shapes such as my star flower design. It is so much fun to start with all these loose pieces and by putting them together, see how beautiful they can be. The added benefit is seeing my pieces worn by someone. That is so amazing when someone opens up a package with one of my designs and oohs and aahs over it.
I hope to continue doing this for years to come!

Additional policies and FAQs
Some of the items I sell may be hand painted items, and I will specify if they are hand painted by me (Teresa Bolton) or store/factory purchase.

I like when jewelry is original and one of a kind. I think it is really special when you have a piece of jewelry or item that is unique and you know you are the only one with that item. It makes it more special and more personal and fun when you find that special item.
If you see something you like but maybe want it in another color or shorter/longer length the item will not exactly match your example item by material but will be in the same general style. (Please note that some materials I use may be a one time find or colors may be hard to find due to what is in for that season and I may not have enough material to make the item you want). If you have a special request to make something new not related to an item I sell, please let me know. I will try to work with your special requests. There may be an additional fee for materials depending upon your needs or requirements. I will do my best to fill your request but I will not accept the request if I know it is out of my range of abilities or materials.
