I just love working with wire! As mentioned in my last post a few months ago, I am still working and experimenting with various types of wire to create items of jewellery. I have learnt so much about the different types of wire and am constantly amazed at my results. Copper Wire is great for making rings and have found that the best type for this is 20 gauge (0.8mm) and 18 gauge ( 1mm.) I tend to use silver and gold plated copper wire as well as plain copper . The whole process of creating something beautiful from simple bits of wire is exciting and oddly enough, calming.
I now have an ever growing collection of jewellery, some of which I wear ( great excuse for product testing certain designs.) I also work with Aluminium Wire and will include some these examples in my next post.
