What is 'wire wrapped jewelry'?

Wire wrapping is like basket weaving magic but with metal threads! It's a delightful craft that lets you bring your imagination to life by adorning stones, beads, and charms with intricately twisted and woven wire. Whether you're crafting a stunning necklace, a pair of earrings, or a one-of-a-kind bracelet, wire wrapping adds a touch of elegance and personality to your jewelry creations. You can even adorn your home with wire woven decor and learn to 'draw' shapes by bending wire.

I still remember the first time I saw someone wire wrapping. I was mesmerized by the way they were able to capture a beautiful stone in a way that displayed a whimsical skill. I eagerly asked them if I could sit down with them " would you please show me how you do that"? It was it was love at first sight. That was 2016 And I haven't stopped since. Y

Like playing the guitar, you do have to get over that slight pain that from holding tension the wire between your fingers. I even have calluses! There is so much push and pull and tension control when your wire wrapping that I believe makes you the kind of wire wrapper that you are. Some wire wrappers are better at controlling that tension than other wire wrappers. Some wire wrappers have a heavy hand so they go with a heavier gage or 1/2 hard wire instead of a dead soft wire. All I know is that if you keep practicing you will be able to achieve just about anything with wire and your hands.
