As some of you will remember I have been having trouble with my muse who keeps going on holiday! Then out of the blue she came back to me and made me try my new interest called wire wrapping.
I really wanted to make some more quilts but since my shop of Precious Quilts does advertise quilt, blankets and so much more... I thought I would try to develop this new skill. Well a girl has to try, doesn't she?
Wire wrapping is not an easy skill to acquire but I will persevere and see where it takes me. As you will have seen, below, I have incorporated some beading with it to make my butterfly and spider. Now I am trying my hand at making my first necklace with glass beads. Easy peasy, oh really! Well................ Don't look too closely will you? I still have a long, long way to go.
Note I haven't given you a good close up..... I wonder why? LOL
Anyway, I will keep you updated as I create more. At least I now have the proper tools. My dear husband, an ex aircraft engineer, had all the pliers etc and offered them to me. Bless, somehow tools for mending aircraft didn't sit too well with winding wire around beads! When I showed him my new tools he did realise and admitted his pliers were a little on the large and clumsy side for this sort of work. Still, it did help me get started and loved the support he offered me.
