I design my stones by a water marble technique. Then I wire-wrap and wire-weave them.

I’ve only been doing this for about a year, so I still have so much to learn. I must say it’s very addicting!!

  • Gorgeous, Barbie! I love how the swirls of wire echo the swirls of marbling in the stones. Your water marble stones are beautiful, and the wire wrap makes a terrific frame for them.

    Your piece is absolutely gorgeous. You say “only a year”, OMG you have a creative eye! Good job!

  • Nancy Vaughan says:

    Wow! Love the stones and wire work. Question: Exactly how do you do the water marbling? I’m familiar with a marbling technique using paper. Is it basically the same?

    I love your feedback Joybelle, Thanks!!!

  • Barbie says:

    Water marbling is mixing finger nail polish and luke warm water, you then create your design, dip your stone slowly and remove to dry. It takes a lot of trial and error to get it right, but it’s a lot of fun. If you try it please show your results. Thanks for the feed back!!
