Yesterday’s post from Club Creative Studio shared a few challenges of the latest wire worked project. Any single day can be filled with obstacles if you are trying a creative project for a first time or have been away from a technique for any duration of time. Today’s Feature Friday post will share a few successes from the challenges of working with wire in a new way.
Basicly, when I sat to create these necklaces, I wanted to have the feeling and look of the technique of chain maille but, not all of the complicated segments. That look combines individual loops in a maze-like pattern repeated over and over that link together. This did the trick for me because for one, I did not get a headache or confused too often and for the second reason, I was able to duplicate the method using a variation of technique.
Today, I am thankful for variety at the design table, especially the variety of wire.
Wire lends itself to change. Wire has different levels of strength and durability, it has a range in gauge (thickness), presents itself in suitable qualities, and it is offered in a variety of colors as well. It is a wonderful to experiment with. When I wrap in wire, it also looks wonderful to mix silver, gold or copper wires together. I love working with wire. Does it show?
