Wire Wrapping

I've been interested in wire wrapping jewellery for a while, when I come across photos of beautiful designs,  I want to give it a go and see what I can come up with. Well, I came across a large bead, that's been sitting in my bead box since the summer. I had some gold plated 20 gauge wire, which is  softer than the normal 20 gauge wire, was my work table, so I started playing around with it and this is what I came up with.

It's not perfect, but I like it, I'm wearing it right now. The  wire could of been wound a bit tighter and I could of wrapped the base a bit better, but I think it's ok first a first attempt. I've already ordered some more craft wire to try and practise with. Wire wrapping has now joined my crafting 'To Do' list, which keeps growing. I'll be showing my makes on here, as and when I create them.

Bye for now

Is it that time of year already?

I was hoping to launch my new bridesmaid jewellery range this month, but have decided to delay it till the spring. This is because it's that time of year again, you know the one were us crafters are franatically making gorgeous items for christmas.  Whether it's fabulous jewellery, amazing cards or yummy smelling candles, everyone in the crafting world, is getting their shops ready for festive season.

I've already started making my sparkling goodies, mainly bracelets, earrings and necklaces, there will be lots of colour, bling and sparkle. If your looking for jewellery to wear for any upcoming xmas parties or events, or you want to buy a special christmas gift, stop by my online shop. I will be adding  lots new pieces in the weeks leading up to xmas.

Here's a bracelet, with matching earrings, that I made last night, as you can see I've made it in my favorite colour, purple. It will be on sale very soon in my online shop, at

Bye for now.
