Amazing Wrappers!

Is this bead component not a show stopper?

Yesterday John Bead sent an email to its wholesale customers announcing the arrival of a whole group of new Artistic Wire Ltd. items.  Where to begin?  The wrappers are so unique I thought I would start with them.

This is just one of the shapes available: Silver Hexagon.  I also just received these gorgeous SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS luminous green crystals to experiment with…..they seemed to belong together.

The crystals have now been safely “caged” just by simply wrapping wire.  You can see how the outer edge grooves make this super easy to accomplish.  I tried several different ways to wrap the crystals from many wraps to just two.

I think this wrap, using all the grooves, might be my favorite.

Now, where do you go from here?  If you are Fernando Dasilva you create a masterpiece like this!  More wrapping tomorrow!
