Hey now, when did I become a blogger? Oh yeah, just a few minutes ago! Yay me.
Here you are. Welcome to the world of YukonReddy Jewelry and Beads. I have been creating pretty things since middle school, and have given up on it many times. I had a semi-recent tragedy that sent me into my own little world, and out of that tragedy my little world has brought beauty! I am still more of a hermit than I would like, but my obsession is with creation.
Up until a couple of years ago, I had never even tried anything other than tiger tail where wire was concerned. Then I had a fellow Pretty Things lover send me some stranded copper wire, and I was off!
I had to research, and learn how to
- strip wire without marring it
- what gauges work best together
- how to wrap a simple weave
- how to make a bail
- what different wires contained, and that cheap silver wire isn't actually silver at all
Good night and god bless, from the frozen north!
