I am in love with crystals. This is all I can say, but have a lot more to show instead.

I just love experimenting in and of itself. I love trying new things, especially when we talk about art and creating in general. Like a friend/colleague of mine said several years ago- When you do something, suddenly you think: “What will happen if … , and you just do it to see!” And even though it was in the context of architectural projects, it is valid for almost every creative project I undertake. So there was this pretty “logical” thought while I was researching other jewelry designers- “What will happen if I add some metal wire details to my jewelry pieces?” Then bought some copper and aluminium wires (and just a meter of sterling silver as a sample) and started experimenting- first with some beads and stones I found, and then garnished some polymer clay pieces I had previously made.

My first wire ring, a variation of a tutorial I found on YouTube, silver platted copper wire and agate:

After some more wrapping (well, a lot more:)):

Copper platted aluminium wire and agate resulted in a butterfly (I don’t know what it is with me and butterflies lately…)

Then followed…

Then time for the sterling silver wire and the entirely handmade pair:Image

And the last piece for this post is my favorite one for now:

On the hand of its new owner, fits just perfect:)Image

Have a great day and don’t stop experimenting, the nicest surprise may be just around the corner!
