I've been tweaking found objects for as long as I can remember. I remember once when I was six I made a pretty necklace out of knotted grass and flowers. I spent what felt like days on it. I also remember crying for what felt like days when it dried up and fell apart.
Since then I've been looking for the right medium for me. I've tried paint.. string.. yarn.. pencil.. silver.. and even a tattoo machine for awhile. In all of that searching I have realized a few things.
I LOVE working in three demensions.
I am a total rock hound!
I LOVE watching metal melt, cool then eventually oxidize.
I will NEVER learn to be organized. My only hope is that snipped wire doesn't land in my bottomless cup of coffee.

I don't mind the rough skin or messed up fingernails. I thank God that he allows me to work. I can't wait to see how my work evolves.
This is a very simple and sweet wire wrapped heart ring. It makes up very quickly and can be as fancy as you want it to be. Try using 2-3mm gemstone beads. Or keep it simple and have fun with colored craft wire and seed beads.
