Wire Wrapping Excess

I set off to make a few pieces of jewellery for friends this weekend, and just kept going. The zips have reappeared, I have wrapped quartz, fabric, lace, glass, string, thread and more. It was so soothing matching colours then simply wrapping wire around each piece, I like the feel of all the different textures beneath my fingers combined with the supple copper as it runs through my fingers. All of the pieces here are now for sale at my Etsy store. I will show you the others when they have arrived at their new homes.
The beautiful skeleton leaves I photographed these on were collected from below the lemon tree this morning; the snails and slugs were enjoying stripping them clean just for me. I think these ones (the leaves, not the snails) will become the background for some journals.

I hope all the West Australians have enjoyed this long weekend.

Soooo beautiful Julie (love that gorgous pink bracelet) and great to see the re-emergence of the zips. They really appeal to me for some reason....maybe my love of sewing??

Beautiful pieces ! I'm not a pink person but the quartz bracelet won my heart!

These look fab Julie, I especially like the pink one....I was so tempted that I actually pulled out the tape measure! ...too big, oh well, next time perhaps. Your journals are lovely too, great colour. Ux

Beautiful work Julie. Particularly like the pink bracelet - stunning!

I am giggling as I type this as Esmeralda is rubbing her chin on the top left hand side of my laptop. And I swear she is looking at your blog as I type this!
