The journey of one Angsty Artist, struggling to find her identity, her name and her own style.

This bracelet gave me an emotionallly wild ride. Often times I have a very set idea in my head of what I want the finished design to look like. The problem with that way of designing is that it's much more easy to be disappointed with the finished project.
I had to force myself to finish this design because the weaving wasn't as neatly and evenly done as I envisioned it would be. I also smashed a couple of the copper beads with a hammer accidently :)
When I finally got to the very end (weeks later) and was able to bend it around a bracelet mandrel and shape it, I was very surprised to find myself as excited about the design as when I first imagined it. I just love it!!
I wear a lot of grey in my wardrobe and I love how copper looks with grey. The copper cuff with peacock pearl accents and my new grey dress are going to look terrific. I mean they DO look terrific, as that is what I am wearing right now. And I'm going grocery shopping like that:) hehe
My name is Mary. My daughter has recently moved on to college leaving me footloose and fancy free. This affords me more time to pursue my own goals:)
I have always made things since I was a young girl, I loved needlepoint and embroidery in my youth. I tried my hand at many crafts over my life but I have always stuck with jewelry and beads.
When I discovered wire wrapping I knew I had found what I was looking for all my life!
I work in engineering designing mechanical parts, though currently I manage mechanical aspects of PC Boards specifically.
I dream of one day wire wrapping full time.
