Pandemic Productivity Jewelry Weekend
by Diana White.
It has been ages since I shared work with JMJ. . Wirework is how I started off making jewelry back in 2006 but for the past couple of years I’ve been doing a lot more fabrication work with sterling, my saws, rolling mill, torch, solder, and my citric pickle pot. This past weekend, though, I decided to get back to my wire sculping roots. I had a stainless steel and rainbow niobium wire project I started more than a year ago sitting in one of the may ziplock bags I use to set aside materials for pending projects. I don’t know what it was that inspired me to grab that specific project, but I’m very happy with the end results.
I found the steady and repetitive motions of weaving just as meditative as doing focused breathing exercises. Only with weaving, you get to see progress and have something to wear when all’s said and done.
