I thought I would share the results of my first forays into a new technique for me – wire wrapping.
|Wire Wrapped Flint Arrowhead|
This first item is a flint arrowhead that a colleague gave to me asking if I could turn it into a pendant. I am happy to say that she is delighted with the results.
After the arrowhead I decided to try and wrap a couple of pairs of earrings using teardrop semi precious beads in turquoise and coral.

I have always really enjoyed the look of wire wrapped jewellery, but haven’t been brave enough to try. I now cannot wait to try out some more projects. I have a few stones without drilled holes that I can make pendants from. One of the great things about jewellery making is the multitudes of techniques and styles to try out – it’s impossible to get bored!

Now I just need to get more wire…..off to the shops!
