Celebrating wire on Beading Arts

Mixed metals and resin necklace

Do you love working with wire or does it frustrate you?  Wire has never been my primary material, although I love the look of it...especially when someone who really knows what they're doing uses it!  But even a fumble-fingers like me can put together a couple of fun projects that incorporate wire in different ways, and that's what this month is going to be all about. 

During this month (and into the next one if we need to), I'm going to share a round-up of information that's in our archives here on Beading Arts, and point you to the fabulous work done by artists we already know, but I also want all of you who love working with wire to join in too. Whatever you do with wire, especially if you combine it with beads, we want to see your work. You don't have to be a pro...you just gotta tell us why you love wire! Please send your artist statement of one to two paragraphs, and up to three images (72dpi res) of your work, along with a link to your site to cyndi @ mazeltovjewelry.com (remove the spaces). Please put Wire artist in the subject line.

This is such a cool necklace! What are the hoops made out of? Are they large jump rings, or prefab hoops? Where can I get some components like this? Love your blog!
