These pieces are incredibly beautiful! Did you buy them or make them if I may ask?

These are some practice ones I made with copper when I was first learning how to do wire-wrapping. I read a great book called Wire Wrapping: The Basics And Beyond by Jim McIntosh about wire-wrapping stones. His technique is very useful for odd-shaped stones and he gives instructions on how to measure so that you don’t waste wire. The technique worked so well for me that I very rarely had to throw out a tangled mess of wire and start over. He has videos on YouTube – the first one is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4DsWsY3iJF4
Thank you, I do some wiring myself but had no classes or whatsoever. The result is pretty simple, as you can imagine. I love doing them though 🙂
I am going to watch this video right away! 🙂
Let me know if you have questions (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I can try to answer – I have the book here and can look things up for you or maybe scan a page or two with important info.
This is so kind of you but I do not want you to come in an awkward situation because of copyright issues. I just looked it up by amazon here and I can buy the book, even in original English! Yay!
Excellent! I think you will do very well. You are very creative and you work a lot with your hands. Be sure to use a very good nail hardener – I found that when I did a lot of this, my thumb nails were splitting until I started using a hardener.
You really can be proud of yourself, you have done some amazing job here 🙂
Thank you, but it really is this guy’s technique – I’ve tried wrapping before and failed miserably!
Sorry to hear that, but you have learned with much success, as everyone can see!
