The Floral Range

The floral range of crochet wire necklaces are delicately created from coloured aluminium and copper wire. They feature old world fabric pansies and mini crochet rounds made from vintage semco embroidery cottons that I have inherited from my grandmother. Each piece is decorated with small beads and threads of wire. 

 

Cable Range

The unique cable range have been created utilising electric cable and fuse wire and numerous computer cords. Each piece is created for an individual look which is tough and durable while providing the perfect accessories.

The Smokey Quartz Range

This range of jewellery which includes necklaces, bracelets and rings combine the usage of copper, aluminium and gardening Tye wire with raw chunks of locally prospected smokey quartz. Each piece encases the quartz  and creates a sculptured wearable piece of authentic art for your enjoyment.

 

The Copper Range

The copper range of jewellery showcases a range of different textures, colours and gauge size of copper wires. Each piece is handcrafted to highlight the brilliant qualities of this amazing medium. Majority of the copper wire utilised has been sourced from old televisions and washing machines. Some amazing pieces have been created from machines that have caught fire, which provides a dark tinge to copper - very unique!

 

Bracelets and Cuffs

The bracelets and cuffs vary in design and in the materials used. The images shown give examples that include copper and aluminium, raffia, electrical and computer cable and leather. If you are not into wearing a necklace, a decorative bracelet or cuff can make the perfect accessory to any outfit. 

 

Wire Insects

crochet_insects_003

Not sure where these guys came from.. but I thought about the idea after seeing some amazing dragonflies in my garden.... voila!!!!. the wings are structured from hard copper wire which is then wrapped in finer coloured aluminium and copper wire. The bronze wire covering the central body is a really soft glossy copper out of a television. I have made these critters into brooches but could easily be adapted to be hair clips.
