Friday Freebie: Working with Wire
September 3, 2010
Surfing around the Interweave store I see that there is a new DVD done with a friend of mine, Ronna Sarvas Weltman, about working with wire. Years ago, when Ronna was a private student of mine for working with polymer clay, I went to her home for some polymer sessions and to answer her questions about specific directions she wanted to go. She was already established in wire and I got to see her work spread out on the dining room table, luscious and clearly in her own style.
There is a clip of the DVD here: www.interweavestore.com with Ronna showing a piece of one of the projects on the DVD for making a necklace. What caught my eye about this was that the title of the DVD is ‘Metalwork: How to Shape, Texture, and Antique Wireworked Jewelry’. It was the antique part that caught me mostly though it was the word ‘metalwork’ that got me initially. Check out the clip for a bird’s eye view on working with different gauges of wire and how simple it can be. Be sure to take a good look at the necklace Ronna is wearing in the clip! It’s worth seeing.
