In the PINK NOTEBOOK section of the Club Creative Studio homepage, you will find hand-made highlighted art in the special feature section. Today, we feature hand-twisted wire-wrapped themes as unique statement necklaces created by Club Creative Studio.
Working with wire is fun because it can be rewarding to manipulate wire to form into your vision when you create with it. Especially when a design is free-formed, the wire can be an added element that offers movement as well as stability to a design.
You can experiment with simple and complex designs when using wire. I like working with wire because it can be the same as working with thread without the hassle of threading a tiny needle eye. I also tend to add a certain style hint from what I incorporate.
A variety of beads, pearls, buttons, shells or mixed metals combined with vintage elements bring charm and a feeling of nostalgia to created designs. On yet another spectrum the simplicity of organic-looking wooden beads or tiny seed beads bring about another look entirely.
The reason why my finger tips have been so sore lately is because of creating these unique pieces of art. There is a lot of hand-twisting techniques applied when working with wire.
Although it is a forgiving medium to explore, at many points in a project:, excessive twisting can cause wire breakage or “hot spots” in your hands. You just have to learn what twist tension to maintain. There are design differences in using thread versus wire but, for the most part, both designs are light-weight as a finished project.
