(Behind the Scenes, JMJ, USA)
Years ago, when I first “met” Rena online, just like everyone else, I had a line of jewelry that I did turn into a business. However, life took some unexpected turns and that business had to go dark while I took my skills in another direction.
About a week ago I received a freebie in the mail.
Normally, I don’t pay much attention to these things but this medallion was metal; had nice detail and had a bit of weight to it. It didn’t feel cheap at all, but as a whole, the keychain looked a little cheap to me. But hey, it was free. I wasn’t complaining, I just thought I could make it better.
So this morning, before attacking my JMJ duties, I pulled out my tools, blew the dust off them, and remade my little freebie keychain with some hematite beads and silver colored copper wire.
I reintroduced my fingers to the joy of wire wrapping with some simple wrapped loops. My personal favorite technique.
I snapped some pics quickly with my phone right here at my desk and decided to post my first piece of wirework in at least a year.
I can’t believe I forgot how much fun this is!
