I initially learned wire work by finding tutorials online and experimenting. Eventually I learned to make the traditional Tree of Life pendant with the twisted trunk and beads for leaves. Then lately I’ve had this image in my mind of bare tree branches across a full moon.
I made a few sketches and then went for it.
Now, I can’t stop, I make a pendant then right away want to make another. There is something zen like and theraputic about wire work for me, it gives my mind an opportunity to focus and leave the world behind.
I urge you to try working with wire, as you get confident you can really find your creative voice and make things you didn’t expect.
