Sally tries really hard to teach me wire. The problem is me, not her. If you check out her blog (see sidebar: Wireworked), you will see what a beautiful and creative jewelry artist she is; and she is a great teacher, as her sold out classes prove. The problem is clearly me. The center pendant in this picture, I made back in the fall. I decided I would take what I learned in Sally's recent wire class and in the freedom of my own home, with no one watching, I would wow myself by making a ring to wear on my right hand. Well, the wire disc you see in this picture is my "ring". After a few days passed, I licked my wounds and used it to make this pendant. I made a couple more yesterday, after putting the first one out of my mind for several months. My family (aka: my biggest critics) love them, much to my surprise. My oldest did give me a few suggestions as to how to tweak it to make it better. I will try her suggestions in the next round and see how it looks. Not sure if these are winners or not. Just putting them out there.
