Artistic Wire Mesh is also now available at John Bead.
I used it in combination with the new wire wrappers to create this necklace.
If you have not worked with mesh before you’ll be happy to learn it is available in two sizes (18 and 10mm wide) and all the classic metallic colours.
For my necklace I used a number of fantatsic new items in the John Bead catalogue.
1. New for Dazzle-It : Rhodium/Teal Agate Nuggets.
2. Artistic Wire Horseshoe shaped wrappers and SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS burgandy blue briolettes.
3. Silver Artistic Wire Mesh 10mmx1m Silver
4. Gold Artistic Wire Mesh 18mmx1m Gold
I was very happy with my finished sample. I did get lots of inspiration from Fernando Dasilva’s blog posts. I picked three of his samples to show you. Go to his blog to see them all. Then you will really want some wire mesh!
He used the mesh in a number of interesting ways which showcased the numerous different techniques you could experiment with.
I love how these big baubles are cradled in the mesh.
I thought his idea to fold the mesh was fantastic! Isn’t this gorgeous?
