How to wrap beads using silver wire March 09 2015
All our work combines gemstones cut in a circular shape known as a donut, and we incorporate sterling silver wire work to wrap the stones and create intricate designs that interact with each other.
The tools needed for this work are basic.
you will need a set of jewellery pliers including cutters for cutting the wire, long nosed flat pliers for holding the wire and round nosed pliers for creating looks and for bending the wire.
All the techniques that we use have been learned from trial and error , but most importantly you need imagination, as technique alone will not create ideas.
We have been combining wire work with silversmithing and using weaving techniques to attach the stones and their surrounds together.
