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!
Are you just starting out and looking for something quick, easy, and also kinda cheap?
Well, this is it!
While making earrings from this surprisingly simple tutorial you'll also learn:
How to hold and use pliers
How to make a basic spiral
How to open & close earwire loops
More than 30 photos and extensive descriptions at each step will help you complete a beautiful pair of gemstone earrings in minutes! Design notes throughout will explain not just what to do, but why you're doing it so that you can learn from it and carry forward your skills to other projects.
It's a satisfying project that will get you started in wire-wrapping with minimal output.
