And So It Begins....

To start off this blog my first post is about the start of my journey into wired jewelry. I am self-teaching how to use wire in my earrings so I bought a hammer last week but I needed to find an anvil or metal block without hurting my wallet. I asked my dad for a piece of metal that I can use instead of getting an anvil and today he brings home two pieces of copper blocks! It's great to have a dad who's an engineer!

So excited to use this block of metal, I start hammering a random piece of 18 gauge wire. And voila! I made a flattened loop! Then putting it beside a reject earring and this happened.


I love it! It's still a work in progress but it's too late to work on it now. I'd wake up the neighbors.
