I've seen some really fantastic pieces with elaborate wire work. The best ones in my opinion look like the artist hadn't a care in the world and simply kept wildly wrapping and wrapping. Unfortunately, my skills are rather limited but I figured I would try my hand at a few simple designs to pass the time.
This first one was made with copper wire and China chrysocolla cubes. These little cubes have wonderful blues, greens, and even sometimes a rust color streaked through them. The brilliant glow of the copper really pops next to the subdued tones in the stones.
The next one is a silver cuff bracelet. Yellow turquoise is great if you're looking for a stone with some character. Each one has it's own unique color and variation ranging from bright yellows to blues or even blacks. With such variety from stone to stone, this bracelet only needed one type of stone to keep it interesting.
The last one is a charm type bracelet. Little salamander and toad charms adorn this piece along with lots of Vintaj brass components and a large twisted brass colored wire bead. Two large Feldspar stones and little seed beads add a calming teal color to the piece.
