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

It's been a challenging week in my life so I didn't want to work on frames. Making soldered frames is my least favorite wire activity, but I love how they look so I stick with it.
It's so very soothing to take a step back and work on a design that feels well within reach of my abilities.
For the first time, I used a brass wire brush to remove oxidation from the pin. It was a wonderful experience! The soft brass bristles get into nooks and crannies that no polishing cloth or steel wool will ever reach!
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.
