So I wanted to try something new today. I am really into the wire jewelry lately and was curious if I could do this myself. I make jewelry and have been for years but never ventured down this road before and I thought it would be fun. So here we go!
It is very important that you use the right tools because if you do not the wire can get very beat up in the process of bending and twisting. So you will need some tools exactly like the ones in the picture.
I like to use the top of a lipstick container or nail polish lid for certain parts of my project as well.
Now to start out I didn’t want to spend a ton of money on expensive wire just to screw up on some of my fails. I found some amazing colorful easy to use wire and the Dollar Store.
This worked out perfect for me. I started with a project I found on Pinterest spelling out names with wire.
The first one as you can see was a little choppy but as I got the hang of it it got smoother and smoother.
