Wirework ring...

One of the workshops I did at Birmingham with Beadalon was on creating wirework rings. I kept my design quite simple and had a fantastic Swarovski crystal to use to create in our piece. The concept was quite simple - but I think it's an art that would just get better and better with practice. There's a few knacks to learning about the sizing - it's a learning aspect to understand how much the wire loosens from the sizing you start with. I might go back to this piece to have a play with some finer wire in a complementing colour to experiment with some more techniques. If I do I'll post another picture up for you! So needless to say a ring mandrel and more wire is now on my shopping list!!
happy crafting
