Irresistible

Another of the crinklized dichroic pendants wire wrapped. This one has a teal to magenta color shift depending on the light. It's hard for me to pick a favorite out of these as I think this glass from Coatings by Sandburg is so beautiful. I think the textured surface adds so much to the glass' ability to catch and reflect light even more than normal. When I looked at this, all I could think was 'Irresistible' so that's its title.

I experimented with my wire wrapping too and added a few different swirls. My approach probably is not terribly conventional, as I just look at a piece and it sort of 'tells' me where the wire should go....most of the time that works, other times...not so much and the wrap goes in the recycle pile. I chalk that up to developing my wire art style.

And I am working on a pair of earrings but they are not quite done, so I hope to post a picture of them this weekend.

I am not exactly sure how you actually do this but ... your work is amazing! I am so impressed with your work! Absolutely lovely!

Oh, you are so sweet. Thank you so much, I am very humbled by your kind words.

On my next batch of fused pendants and earrings (yes, earrings) I will do a step by step of the process, and try to include one of the wire wraps as a step by step too.

Irresistible is absoultely right! Your wrapping skills are wonderful. I'd love to see your process.. the way I wrap cabachons, it would not be possible for me to do the swirls you create. Once again, beautiful!

Wow. I see what you mean about the glass. Beautiful.

Thanks Sandy for your compliment on my wrapping skills...that means a lot to me considering your abilities to wire wrap!

Thanks Tracey. You should see the glass in person, the photo just doesn't do it justice. :)
