More wire

It seems I have a love affair with wire these days. I can't tell you how many things I've started and I am ready to finish, all wire-related :)

Between them - some jig work. I found it very relaxing to swirl the wire around the jig pegs and then to hammer them down (gently, I already replaced a few links in one of the bracelets :)). Lesson learned? If you hammer on a beaded link, put something in front of the bead, so the hammer will not strike the gemstone!

Wire work: sterling silver, Swarovski crystals, pearls, jade, gemstones: necklaces, pendant, bracelet, earrings :: All Pretty Things

Although I am never fond of dark colours, the dark gray pearl & Swarovski set (earrings & bracelet) is looking really great. Then there is the purely crystal Swarovski bracelet and earrings - a very elegant set that can be matched to absolutely everything you want. Making the pink agate bracelet was a lot of fun: it's very happy and cheerful :)

All these sets can be personalized to use your own birthday stone, or maybe your wedding theme colours - they are perfect for the bridal party (and for the bride too!). They are very easy to wear and give you the most delicate and elegant feeling. Who wouldn't want to feel beautiful?

What's your relationship with wire and the wire jig?


  1. Wow - what a collection! Absolutely beautiful wirework on all of these. Most of my wirework is free hand, even when I make charms. But I do have a wig jig, and have used it a few times. But your work is inspiring me to take that out and give it another whirl!

    1. Thank you! I am not comfortable enough to try free form... yet :) working to get there... I found wire my most happy medium so far. I love working with it.

  2. 'scuse me while I get a tissue to wipe the drool from my chin!!!! Especially Love the Chandier earrings. Still have to dig oout the jig and try your tute!

    1. LOL, Marlene, you're way too funny! Thanks :) Now... go get that jig out and make yourself the chadelier earrings!
