Wire Wrapping!


“‘Cause I’ve got a chance for a sweet, sane life
I said, I’ve got a dance and you’ll do just fine
I’ve got a plan- look forward in my eyes

‘Cause today my heart swings.”

Jade Heart

Though it has been a while I feel it’s a now-or-never sort of situation to get back into posting things.

I have started up on the wrapping of stones into jewelry.  For the absolute longest time I have been enraptured by all things of nature including (if not especially) rocks and stones.  As a child I collected them, though they didn’t really have a relevant place in my life.  My roommate currently does quite a bit of wire jewelry that includes wrapping stones and it has officially rubbed off on me.

She showed me a local shop known as the ‘Gem Den;’ it may as well be a candy store to me.

My jewelry-making mission statement is: to showcase a particular stone through minimal but interesting wire wrapping.

This particular jade stone’s shape reminded me of an anatomical heart (which I have done many drawings and sculptures for previously).
