Daily Item 9 - Some Wire Work

This isn't a new piece but I realized I haven't shown off much of my wire work and this is one of my favorites. I had to teach myself how to do wire wrapped jewelry and it was very intimidating at first. I was petrified that I would waste some of the wire, especially the gold! I'm cheap by necessity so even an inch of wasted gold would have sent me into a tizzy. Actually, it did happen a couple of times and I was just sick. The boo-boos are still in my gold recycle jar and I cringe every time I see them.

Luckily, this piece was a success on the first try. I love the way the wire forms a heart over the lovely lady cameo. I hope you enjoy her too. You can find more details here:
