Back to Basic Wire Wrapping

Friday, July 09, 2010

In the next few hours we will be flying off to Penang.
For what? Lets just say to meet the relatives :)
We will be there over the weekend + Monday and Tuesday.
Lets see, the last time I was there was about 20 years ago when I was still a student.
Now you can guess how young I am...LOL.
That trip was an unforgettable one but I leave that story for another time...
ahhh...you know how students life was...so innocent and curious...happy and carefree...
At that time, I didn't know that one day I will have relatives in Penang...that's life...

Anyway, back to wire jewelry, its Back to Basic with this bracelet.

This involved mostly basic wire wrapped shapes. Anyone can make this.
Let loose, have fun with the wire and it will not disappoint you.
Two types of stones here - Amethyst and moonstone.
Love the hook and wire wrapped water lily attached to the clasp.
Been a while since I last made similar clasp like this one. This one is really sturdy as I wire wrapped it with 28ga wire so that it won't straighten due to wear and tear.
Simple wire swirls bent on the opposite directions to form a link. Use thicker wire for this - 19ga.

Lets see whats interesting in Penang after this.
Meantime, have a great weekend! I sure will :)

Love the bracelet, especially the big amethyst drop and the thing that looks like dragonfly wings. Have fun in Penang!
