WireWrapping in Copper
Emboldened by the number of years I spend making jewelry, I recently started on the technique of wire-wrapping. I started with wrapping Swarovski Crystals around simple brass hoops. For, my second project, I used Copper colored Swarovski crystals on Copper components. While the Swarovski crystal in itself has a orange/ yellow tone, the actual copper component is rosy. The addition of black wire adds a nice contrast. I adore anything asymmetrical, which is why I thought it would be a nice point of interest to add the tiny Swarovski crystal beads in an unbalanced fashion around the Copper Circle. Wire wrapping is something i would like to continue for my future projects, but for now, these two are my ode to Wire Wrapping in Copper.
