Wire Jewelry Project #1

Project #1

Concerto Necklace by Cindy Wimmer

This is a great project to use those ceramic, lampwork, or clay beads you've been saving. This necklace design incorporates both coils and spirals, two classic wire working techniques. The coils and spirals are used as hooks to link the elements into a beautiful and sophisticated necklace. The beads of your choice are attached using a wire loop on the ends of each wire. The final piece can be oxidized if you desire.

Cindy Wimmer has been creating jewelry for four years, specializing in wire design. Cindy finds inspiration from the artisan lampwork beads that she loves to incorporate in her wire wrapped jewelry.

Beading Heart Pendant by Sonja Kiser

Make this heart-shaped classic wire wrap into your own pendant, following these fun wire wrapping jewelry instructions. Explore the creative possibilities by changing the bead colors or styles to match an outfit, or to celebrate a special occasion and add your own personal style to the wire design. Grab your wire wrapping tools and have fun!

Sonja Kiser became intrigued after reading a project in Step by Step by Dale "Cougar" Armstrong. She has since taken several of Dale's classes and really loves working with wire.

Project #3

Swirls and Whirls by Pepper Mentz

Create this hammered link, wire wrap bracelet using heavy gauge silver. Get inspired, variations are limited only by your imagination. This piece could easily be embellished with glass beads. You may also decide that you like the look of the wire design without the pounded effect. Here's a springboard for creativity.

Pepper Mentz started to use sterling in many of her wire designs to learn to make her own individual pieces to add to her jewelry designs. She enjoys the endless possibilities offered by chain and wire working techniques.

Project #4

Floating Crystal Cube Necklace by Joyce Tromp

This chain maille weave is called captive inverted round, and is often seen with rings in the center instead of beads. Since it is basically a circular netting, you can put just about anything that will fit inside, depending on the size and gauge of the rings. Crystal cubes work well, because the corners of the cube inside the circular shape of the chain hold them in place, creating a "floating" bead.

Joyce Tromp started simple beading projects about six years ago to give as gifts. She made her first chain maille bracelet, and then was instantly hooked. Since then she continues to try new weaves, always looking for a challenge, and a way to make it unique.

Project #5

Timeless Turquoise and Elegant Onyx by Carol Dean Naukam

This versatile bracelet, called Timeless Turquoise, incorporates sterling, copper, and rectangular turquoise beads. The beads are outlined in 18g silver and accentuated with intricately woven 24g copper. Sophisticated wire wrapping creates the durable clasp as an integral part of the design. Vary the wire gauge and bead selection to transform this bracelet from subtle feminine elegance to classic masculine style. This project combines intermediate to advanced wire wrapping techniques.

Carol Dean Naukam is a self-taught jewelry artist and is particularly intrigued by combinations of natural stones and wire wrapping. Her work is displayed in both Missouri and Texas.

Project #6

Wire Wrapped Malachite Pendant by Dale "Cougar" Armstrong

This wire-wrapped jewelry pattern uses a classic technique that was designed with square Argentium Silver.The beautiful shades of green that swirl, bend, blossom, and bulls-eye in malachite almost demand to be set in sterling silver. Because malachite is a copper mineral that can scratch easily and can be difficult to polish, Dale planned to carefully polish by hand and then highlight its natural beauty using Argentium silver wire wrapping.

Dale "Cougar" Armstrong is a self-described "rockhound" with a background in the fine arts and metalwork prior to making wire jewelry. She teaches workshops nationally where she is known for her wire wrapping techniques. Dale lives in southeastern Tennessee..
