Wire Wrapping

 

I have seen some lovely jewellery made using wire wrapping techniques recently.  Here at Proops we stock lots of tools for wire wrapping and also brass, copper, gold plated and silver plated wire in various lengths and thicknesses.  We even have a wire wrapping kit which contains a few essentials if you are just starting out.  Why not pop over to our website and have a look.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great week.

Seaglass

 

I spend a lot of my weekends up in County Durham and one of my favourite places to go is Seaham beach.  Until the 1920s Seaham had one of the largest glass bottle works in Britain and during its days of glass bottles production, any waste glass was dumped into the North Sea.  This glass regularly washes up on the beach with the tide and after years of being tumbled smooth by the waves it leaves these beautiful glass pebbles on the sand.  Every time I go for a walk along the beach I pick some up and as I now have quite a large collection and a little more free time I thought I’d have a go a making some jewellery with it.  I have been having a look for inspiration and techniques on Pinterest and Youtube.  I would also love any advice from any of our customers, so if any of you have tried this yourselves I’d love to hear from you or see your creations.

 

I’ll keep you posted how I get on.
