Nails, Wires Necklaces and Hexes
I was almost finished with this necklace when I realized it didn't have any of my lampwork in it.
This happens every once in awhile.
It does have some big chunky Thai silver beads
and some fabulous ceramic raku beads with plenty of sheen.
Lava beads and abalone shell and enameled copper.
And wire wrapping with oxidized silver field wire.
I was curious about this "silver field wire" that I got at the gem show in Tucson.
It was cheaper and still looked good to me.
Someone behind me in line remarked about the misspelling.
I still didn't get it.
Finally... duh, I got it! Silver filled wire.
I still bought it.
Kim tries her hand at wire wrapping
I kind of like it in a messy kind of way.
I do NOT know what I'm doing!
Ocean jasper focal
Thai silver croissant squiggles.
I have loads of these squiggles back in Alaska to sell.
Let me know if you're interested.
Lava beads, some lampwork and stones.
You know what? I'm running out of twisty wire, whatimgonnado?
A limited run I guess. I do have lots of rusty nails, some waiting for me in Alaska.
People have been contacting me, they have some.
So I thought I'd post this on Etsy before I put it up here and zip it's gone
and this one too...sorry
This one is coming up
And new crusty big hole soft hexes.
Look at the ephemera alek gave me!
We did a bit of a swapperoo
Crusty wasabi big hole soft hexes
Still playing with the ridge-y press.
I kind of like it but have to watch the ends so I don't leave them too sharp.
