Heavy Ideas Light Inspirations Connected by Fire

As I sketch my newest designs, I'm craving heavier wire--guages as thick as 8 and 10--to fire and build my shapes and components. My finishes & hammer taps are getting rougher, more organic less patterned...meant to help the wire capture the full spectrum of light. Weight, Light, Fire.  These are the guides for my newest collection. Here are a few new pieces, all available on Etsy, with many more in production.  I love making jewelry. I must make jewelry. I am grateful when time stops, so that I can make jewelry. Thank you for coming along for the ride. --Angela
