Freeform Wire Wrap Christmas Ornament

This Freeform Wire Wrap Christmas Ornament just popped out by itself following on the fun making of the Freeform Wire Wrap Pendant and Earrings in copper.

This kind of freeform wire wrapping is very rewarding: you never know what is going to turn out and surprise you. And it also offers a perfect opportunity to use up those loose and unused leftover beads in various shapes.

TIP:
  • using a combination of wires gives it extra character and interest.
  • brass wire, as a base, is perfect as it is normally much stiffer than copper or silver.  And as it tarnishes (albeit slowly), it yields more character.

    1. I love copper and the blues and greens on this one really stand out! I enjoy doing wire work too. It is fun and so is this Christmas ornament. BJ
