New experiments with Wire

I am always experimenting with ideas and always wanting to come up with new ideas. I recently have been trying out ideas in wire.

First I shape the wire the way I want it, then I hammer it so that it reflects light and has a good texture. I then cut out my charms (in this case a flower and leaf) which I draw out, cut with a piercing saw, then file and sand to finish. To make the flower I also added fine beading wire and a couple of seed beads to finish.

I am definatly going to experiment more with wire and the charms I make by hand once I've got some more designs worked out.
