Star Power

Well, sometimes I can not help myself when I see something and think...I know exactly what I can do with you pretty star. I have been experimenting with wire wrapping and this is the beginning. I have learned how to make a bail watching videos and free online tutorials.

Now with the wire sculpturing it will be a bit more involved with truly wrapping in a more elegant fashion. So look forward to more wire wrapping and give it a try yourself. I am not a wire expert and this is what I come up with these little stars. This glass star is wrapped with copper.
Measurement: 3cm across
                        1cm thick
And while I was wiring some glass stars I decided to try a more firm wire. This stone is wrapped in stainless steel, it will not tarnish, loose its shine or rust. It is not the best work but you have to start somewhere. I need to invest in a good set of pliers for these projects. My swirls need to improve.
