Wire! I love wire! I especially love the colors - Parawire is my brand of choice, lots of colors and sizes to choose from, great prices and quick shipping. I found a book at one of my favorite used bookstores awhile back - Totally Twisted by Kerry Bogert - I was hooked. Bought several other books and began to play with different techniques. I'm not an expert yet, but I'm making progress..
As you can see the possibilities are limitless... hooks, springs, jump rings, connectors, coils, head pins and they all add a completely new dimension to jewelry. I love that I can have a hook or jump rings in whatever color I want. Choices! I love having more choices!
If you haven't gotten around to trying wire.... get some! You're going to be amazed!
