    Jewelry Making – Memory Wire

    My specialty is wire wrapping, I am a free-form type of designer. However, when you make jewelry for living, you must know many other techniques. I constantly experiment and learn. I break a lot before I make something. 😊 Today I was playing with memory wire. Honestly, I use this wire mostly for hoop earrings and simple coil bracelets, beach style. My problem is that I tend to like elaborate and complicated pieces. So today I ‘complicated’ a regular cuff bracelet design to the point that I spent all my morning on it. And when I finished and was ready to go out for my daily walk, it started to…

    Jewelry Designs – Wire Crochet

    I love playing with wire. Wire is my friend. I always say that. In this post I would like to show off my wire crochet jewelry.

It doesn’t tarnish very fast, and when it does, it looks yellowish, like an antique piece, not black, like other ordinary metals. This silver color copper wire reminds me of white gold… it becomes yellowish when it ages… Simple, elegant cuff bracelet with a sliding clasp. Cuff Bracelet with green Swarovski bicone Crystals.

    My Life as a Wire Artist and Jewelry Maker

    This is where all begins: my little studio in Jersey City, New Jersey. I used to work mostly in the Caribbean, but after hurricanes (two years ago), I moved up here. My studio is full of boxes, wires, beads, glue, tools… also dreams, many dreams. All my dreams are woven into the wire. I let my imagination go wild and I follow the wire. That’s how things come alive. It’s so much fun! I constantly change my designs, they are never the same, that is why I always say that my pieces can not be replicated 100%. My first tree of life pendant came like this. I liked the free-form…
