I'm a self-representing Cape Breton wire artist with a dozen years of experience writing clear instructions for online, adult learners. I love curriculum development almost as much as I love making jewellery! The two are combining beautifully with my online tutorials.
Through all the art forms I've explored - painting, digital art, clay sculpting, web design, paper art, and calligraphy - my love of colour has guided me to new discoveries. Now, over a decade of self-teaching has produced my distinctive, spontaneous style of wire-sculpted art jewellery.
My pieces weave non-tarnish wire around a wide range of stimulating materials. The warmth of semi-precious gemstones, the unlimited, variegated colours of firepolished glass, and the fascinating textures & history of beach glass all lend their own character to each one-of-a-kind creation. In my steampunk-inspired line, the patina of vintage, salvaged materials contrasts sharply with the bright & modern designs in the surrounding wire.
I love to create and I love to teach and share with others. I hope I can help you find a new technique or pattern you'll love!
Get immediate satisfaction with this effortless set of instructions to create the earrings pictured.
By changing the colourway, size, and number of beads, you can create many different kinds of earrings.
I write my tutorials for the absolute beginner. Here in addition to the design itself, I talk about creating symmetry with earring designs and how to properly open and close purchased ear-wires.
To complete this tutorial you should have basic knowledge of wire tools.
