This year I have been focusing more on finished projects than on patterns. I have been working a craft fairs and in consignment shops like The Pink Door in Brighton, Co. I am creating wire art. I have found a real passion for it. Visit my facebook page, GoFishGifts to take a look. If you see anything you would like to make, let me know and I'll work on writing a pattern.
In the past I have taught at local bead and craft stores. I love to give private lessons. I have been teaching for over 5 years now and beading for close to 10. My passion is really wire, although I do love to mix different media like bead weaving and wire.
I hope my patterns inspire you and challenge you. Happy Beading.
Learn to include geometric shapes in wire wrapping.
This pattern will focus on using tools to make wire loops in different shapes. The first step will be to create simple wrapped loops to create connector links. The directions cover how to form them all loops the same size and have the same number of wraps. Next, the directions cover how to create various geometric shapes using common jewelry tools and other household items. The links of the necklace are arranged in groups of threes (circle, square, triangle) with a spacer link in between. This is only a suggestion. Feel free to create your own arrangement such as a grouping like shapes (3 squares, 3, circles, 3 triangles) separated with a spacer link or maybe use a spacer link between each geometric link. Any other ideas? I would love to hear them.
