Wire Wrapped Project by William

Wire Wrapped Pipa Center Piece, Swarovski Pendant and Earrings

These are William's recent wire wrapping projects.
They are birthday gifts for a friend.
I notice that he has a liking to natural colored stones.
If not mistaken, the stones are Picture Jasper.
The pipa center piece is for a bracelet.
Wire wrapped with 20g brass wire.
The earrings and pendant used 19g (thick!). 
Guess he wants them sturdy :)

Wire Wrapped Pipa Earrings by William

Wire Wrapped Pipa Earrings by William

This wire wrapped dangle earrings with Pearl and Amethyst is created by William for his English teacher as a retirement gift last September.

The dangling piece with Amethyst is the Pipa Knot, first introduced by Corra. This knot is very versatile and you can create variations based on your creativity. I used them for bracelets, pendants, clasps and earrings. See some of the variations that I made here - Pipa knot used in various pieces

Wire Wrapped Earrings by William

William actually made quite a number of wire jewelry projects when i started to assemble all the pictures he has taken of his projects. Some are made as gifts, made for order as well as lucky draw items at school function.

Must say this is one of my most popular tutorials. It is relatively easy to execute but the end result will always satisfy you or the new owners ❤️️

▲These 3 pairs of wire wrapped dangle earrings are quite straightforward to do. Just pick and choose your preferred stones and wrapped with simple wire wrapped loops. Lastly, hook them to the earring hooks. These are ready made earrings hooks, so it save you a bit of time.

I you prefer all handmade earring hooks, just google how to make your own ear wire and you'd see lots of tutorials for it.

Up and Coming Wire Jeweler in the House

Introducing someone who has shown interest in this thing called Wire Jewelry. 

He did play around with wire and made me these 2 pairs of 'S' shaped earrings when he's 4 years old.

He is now 17 years old. Time really flies while they are growing. 

He is slowly taking interest in creating wire jewelry again.

Very slowly as he will be sitting for his exam soon.

Here are some of his earlier wire wrapped pieces with stainless steel, copper and brass wires. They were his 2018 year end long school holiday projects. Most of them are practice pieces. Haha, yeah, it took me that long to post them today.

Samples of wirework projects by William

This guy is good with crafting and working with his hands. In his own words, he likes creating "original designs" e.g. wooden crossbow, Katana, knives, mechanical thingy, etc.

Those are for another day posting.

Wire Jewelry - Wire Wrapped Rose Studs

This pair of rose earrings was made a while back.
Pictures were kept to collect dust...haha!
The pair is however with its new owner now.

Wire wrapped with 20 gauge stainless steel wire, this is not a difficult project and does not involve lots of tools.
All you need is wire, wire cutter, something round to act as mandrel (e.g. marker pen), and file for filling the stud's end.

I have a tutorial for similar earrings here - click on the links:

Etsy - Rose Earrings Tutorial

I have it at Artfire as well. However, it is easier at Etsy or Craftsy as the tutorial is instantly downloadable. You do not have to wait for me to email you the tutorial. Artfire does not have this facility.

Wire Jewelry - Purple Cat Earrings

By now, you must be very bored with my cat earrings postings.
Before I bore you some more, here is a bit about the city I live in - Kuching
Kuching City is in the State of Sarawak, Malaysia.

Kuching is a Malay word for Cat, therefore Kuching City is Cat City, literally translated.
There are many theories as to the origin of the City. You can read them here.
Not all are related to cats though.

You must be thinking that we have many cats roaming the city to be called a Cat City.
Not really, but you can find other types of cat all over the city such as this one here.

Cat shaped plants along Jalan Tun Abdul Razak Kuching

These green cats are found at a traffic light junction.
There must be over twenty of them watching over the traffic :)

We also have a muzium dedicated to cats - the Kuching Cat Museum.
Don't expect to find live cats here though.
Check out the above link or just google for Kuching Cat Museum to get an idea.

Enough of Cat City, back to another pair of my wire wrapped cat earrings.
This time around wire wrapped with 20g stainless steel and a purple gemstone.

The Amethyst looks better in the above picture.
Must be the background light.

Wire Jewelry - Still with Cat Earrings

I am still not done with wire wrapped cat earrings.
Hope I am not booooring you with all the kitties:)

This time around, only the head with tiny body.

If you don't know yet, I work almost exclusively with stainless steel wire.
This is 20 gauge round wire.
They are flattened with lots of hammering.

Cute ya???
