My friend, Deborah Gray-Wurz, created this gorgeous necklace from my Victorian Key Pendant tutorial. She accidently grabbed the 20 gauge wire instead of the 18 gauge and you can't even tell. She finished the necklace with garnets, a handmade chain, and a beautiful lock cut from sheet sterling silver. You can see more of Deborah's work at her Etsy shop or at her website. Thanks, Deb, for trying this out.
I've never seen Edward Scissorhands so I'm going to ignore that theme as well. There are a couple bugs in this design that need to be fixed and I'm not 100% happy with the bail. But I'm thinking about using this for a class project and maybe doing a tutorial. Someone experienced with wire will be able to figure it out by looking at it but I'm hoping it might make an interesting project for an intermediate wireworker. This one is 1 3/8" wide but I want to make some smaller ones for earrings. Thanks for looking.
I started my jewelry making journey in 2006 and it quickly took over my spare room and spread out into the living room. I was able to retire from my civil service job in August 2008 and I'm now able to focus on it full time.
