Wire sculpting is the first style of jewellery setting I learned and this is the style of work that was my main focus until I started working with sheet metal. I firmly believe you should never forget where you started from. It is not my main style of work any more but I do occasionally still wrap a stone, cameo or found object in sterling silver, gold fill or copper wire. It adds variety to my work and that is important.
Commissions welcome for this style of wire sculpted pendant using one of your own stones or from our selection.
Please contact me for a bespoke quotation. Price will be based on current price of Gold Fill / Sterling Silver wire which does fluctuate.
