I started out with just experimenting and I look back on my early pieces and think WTF was I thinking?! I had no references and I had very limited supplies but I had begun to teach myself. My Dad knew how enthusiastic I was about it all so he got me some wire jewelry making books. My nose was stuck in them and I was using all the new techniques they taught me. Now I have a lovely collection of supplies and tools I can't live without - my hammer and steel block for example. I have learned what I like but I still like to experiment with new things. My favourite things are fresh water pearls and crystals, so sparkly! My metal of choice is silver (plated for now) although I love antique bronze too. So now I have my etsy shop which I am nurturing to grow big and strong.
Here's a picture of one of my wire spiders, I thank them for guiding my into this passion of mine.
