I just love intricate wire jewelry. It’s so lacy and exotic. To me it always has an air of the ancient about it, very Byzantine, Greco-Roman or even sometimes Egyptian. And what a great
way to showcase gorgeous gemstone beads!
With silver being so expensive I’m doing some dabbling in copper too. I think copper is gorgeous, warm, earthy and very easy to work with. Copper will be gorgeous paired with springtime fashions and sunkissed complexions.
Of course I plan on making silver versions of some of my creations. And even gold if requested!
Here’s a picture of a pair of copper wire-work filigree earrings I made over the weekend. The stones are chalcedony, amethyst, purple quartz, iolite and hematite.
