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

I can't really predict what I will make from one moment to the next these days. My muse is as erratic as my life feels.
With family staying with me this week I suddenly decided it was possible to make rings while having company at the same time. They can be woven while chatting or picked up to work on for an hour or dropped quickly mid design if need be.
The above ring is a victorian garnet glass button with sterling and fine silver. I didn't get to run it through the tumbler because my mother (the button collector) just happened to have a book about buttons with her and gave me a quick course in the care of vintage buttons. Water is a no-no for victorian glass.
Also chalcedony and copper
If I hadn't been under the gun time-wise, I would not have thought to make these rings. I hope to play with the design more. We will see if the muse allows that:)
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.
