Button into Ring
Yes, I know it sounds funny :)
Till recently I separated these two things. Buttons were for dresses, shirts, jackets, etc. Rings were just rings :)
Now , when I see a pretty button, I always think how I could use it to make a...ring!
I had this mother-of-pearl 4-hole button, resting lonely in my box. Why not to give you, my little friend, a new life?
Wire Wrapped Ring~
Ring i just made today. Got my ring sizer in the mail and just went at it! First ring I ever made too. I don't think it's too bad, but I need
some practice. Not planning on selling anything like this till I get sterling silver wire. Anyway, it's just German Style wire and freshwater
pearls. Let me know what you think!( More here!Collapse )

Hello everyone! 1st post
Hello, I have just joined this community to be inspired and share ideas with fellow wire wrappers! I have played with wire and such since as long as I can remember, but started free-form wrapping loose gemstones and such about 7 months ago.
Here are some of my favorites...
Mask with traffic reflector junk wrapped in, various other found trinkets, etc..
Sacred geometry double tetrahedron opalite focal, with pearl drops, and loose quartz wrapped in
Kyanite, moonstone, quartz - This was a "feminine/intuitive/lunar/flow" themed piece.
Thanks for looking! I appreciate any and all comments/advice!

I'm not sure if questions like this are supposed to be here, but I have an idea. My closest friend of 5 years is moving away and I wanted to wire wrap a wooden guitar pick I'm cutting out (baltic birch I believe). Guitar is something we both share an interest in, so I wood burnt his last name (which starts with an "F") onto it the way Fender does theirs. I heard wood will expand and contract in a way that, if you're not careful, could cause it to crack. I'm not sure if this is true for smaller pieces like this though.
Has anyone had any experience wire wrapping wood? Is there anything special I need to know about it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Fragment - For Sale
In a cold, mechanized world that had traded its soul for impermanent things, there lived a seer who channeled other worlds. A decade of visions had shown her that life in other worlds--even those that boasted more artistry, beauty and vibrancy than her own--tended to be in other ways as harsh and cruel as life in her own. Nonetheless, having endured great pain and betrayal in equal measures, she sought solace often in watching the lives of the friends and family she couldn't have--the noble people she saw in distant universes.
The seer was in possession of something which was very rare in any world, which was true friendship. Yet as time ground on, she was surprised and disheartened to find that while her friends gave her immeasurable joy and love, the part of her that was discontent could not be cured of its sorrow and pain and loneliness. The seer knew that most souls are broken into numerous fragments, scattered across places, people, and events, throughout time, space and possibility, but the seer felt more fragmented than most. She railed against her discontentment and heartbreak, wondering why it would not heal.
The one night the seer had a vision, and one of the beings she watched spoke to her directly:
"... You will never be complete. A part of you will always want for release, for some kind of counterpart, for a mode of expression in a passionless, mundane world that staunches magick and smothers possibility. Get over it. This is the part of you that enables you to do what others can't, or won't--that expresses itself and finds release through the unnatural, that rearranges the puzzle instead of fits into it ...
That fragment of you, finds its home in Me."
And the seer understood that without that fragmentation, she could not see other worlds, possible or actual, and without her discontent, she could not create new possibilities either, or have found the friendship and love she had in this life. That the key to magick was held in the most bereaved parts of her soul, and that however far away they might be, that they were loved too.
This delicate hand-crafted pendant is FOR SALE. A fragile, translucent, isolated fragment of sea glass nestles in a cage of wire, glass beads, and space. Pendant measures approximately 1.25 inches in length and comes with a complementary ribbon. Please note ribbons may vary based on stock.

fused glass cab extras - question
Hey there -
When I'm on a roll with making bright sparkley jewelry - it's usually with fused glass pieces that I make in my kiln. I'll do a number of series - with some general ideas in mind of what I'd like to do.
Like I did here with these fused glass cabs
(the picture is linked from my site and is 203 kb or 650x430) I'm cross posting this to a couple of places so I didn't want to junk things up for everyone.
Once I've finished my initial frenzy of creativity - I'll have a bunch of leftovers. Glass cabs that I may or may not get around to using in another round of creativity. Occasionally they'll sit for a year or two - and I'll revisit them periodically until I feel I've make a decsion on what to make with an older piece.
Anyway - I have a question. Do I continue to hold on to them indefinitely - OR - should I list them for sale as potential components?
I mean I can leave them as is, or I can cut grooves in them and create diy kits for beginner wire wrapping.
If I choose to list them do I sell them individually - or as mixed orphans?
Or I can keep holding on to them until the right level of inspiration strikes, and I can always set aside the ones I have had some "thoughts" on with written notes anytime I feel the twinge pushign me in one direction or another.
WHAT would you do? I'm askin' for opinions.

Lapis Lazuli Pendant
Latest wire-wrapped stone - Lapis Lazuli. Haven't wrapped any stones for a while. Had this one on my to-do list for about a year and decided to just go for it. It was a tricky one because of the shape - triangular but with rounded edges. Wrangled with it for hours before it set securely and thus the awkward bail but my main goal really was to get it set to wear as this is my birthstone.
P.S. Here's a video of me wearing the pendant in one of my new random vlogs about nunchucks LOL www.youtube.com/watch
