Mystic Topaz Wire work by linessa Mystic Topaz Wire work by linessa
My first attempt at wire working :D
Took a fair while to do, and in the end, differed from my design-i added a second layer of wire to add interest :D
The wire was bent into shape, then wrapped with the thinner wire to hold it together, then soldered as well to make it stiff, and to keep it secure. No bending or breakage :D all solid :)
Also slightly rolled in the rolling mill to neaten the wire wrapping.

Sold for $125 aud

Sterling Silver 1mm and .05 mm wire
Mystic Topaz stone
Hand manufactured-not a cast piece
time: 3 days off and on

Your first attempt at wire working? Wow.
It's really beautiful-- I would like to try working with thicker wires to achieve this type of effect. Thanks for sharing your work with us!
