Wirework Attempt

Okay, so it's a lot more fun to share my successes with everyone than my failures.  However, I promised to blog about my trials and tribulations as I try to launch a jewelry business.  I'm still in the learning stages, and I've had some success with simple wire work, so I decided to try something more complex.  I've been very into butterflies recently, so I wanted to create an abstract butterfly shape with wire, and wrap it in colored wire to make it a bit more fun.  Well, it turns out that I got the abstract part right!  It's a bit of a mess... and it took quite a while to make.  I think I need to work up to the more complex wire working skills.  Maybe I'll stick to simple wire work for a little longer.  I seem to be at least moderately more succesful at that.  Well, I hope you enjoy this little "goof" of mine.  I'm back to the drawing board for the rest of the weekend!  Happy weekend boys and girls!

Hey Kell,

I think your butterfly turned out beautiful! If you haven't checked it out yet, when you come the the US, you should take a look at Step-by-Step Wire magazine. Lots of great project from beginner wire working to really, really advanced.

Keep up the B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L work! Have a wonderful weekend!

Hi Ladies! Thanks for the encouragement! I'm still learning. The shape came out OK... I just don't like the way it is finished. It's a little sloppy.

Dawn: I bought a step by step wire magazine when I was in the US (It was the best of the projects). I really like it... but haven't had time to try all the projects!

Happy beading!
