Still Playing with Wire Wrapped Number

After number 8, I was inspired to wire wrapped another number.
This time around another lucky number - the number 3.
In Chinese culture, the number 3, "saam" sounds like "birth", thus considered as very lucky - more info here
For this piece, I use the combination of stainless steel and copper wire, and pearls.
Copper wire is so easy to work with :) How I wish stainless steel wire is as soft as that :)

Avia's simple guide to spiritual meaning of numbers is very interesting. Here the meaning for number 3:
Three: The spiritual meaning of number Three deals with magic, intuition, fecundity, and advantage. The number Three invokes expression, versatility, and pure joy of creativity. Three is also a time identifier as it represents Past, Present and Future. Consecutive Threes in your life may symbolize the need to express yourself creatively, or consider your present directional path in relation to past events and future goals. Three may also represent promising new adventures, and assurance of cooperation from others whom you may require help. Three typically symbolizes reward and success in most undertakings - Source:
Looking forward to wire wrap more numbers :)


  1. Wonderful design, I like your combination of different materials. Looking 4ward to the next number.

  2. Great pendant Mei,I like the color combination...I hear you about the stainless wire...I've stainless jump rings that I don't use as they are so difficult to open and close...


  3. There will be more numbers coming :)

    You must have gotten the hard wire jump rings. The soft ones are still workable :) just not as soft as copper.


I like to hear what you have in mind. Thank you for your time.
