About my jewelry


Here is some information about me and my jewelry!

Gloria"Why copper? I thought you were a wire wrap artist!"

I hear that a lot when I wear (or show) my copper jewelry.  I still offer wire creations at wiretreasures.com, but as in all other endeavors in life, there's always something more you want to accomplish.  I learned wire wrapping way back in 2004, but since then have studied other disciplines as well.  At first I wanted to use my newer skills in my wire wrapping, but it didn't take long to get the urge to move away from wire and do some jewelry for which wire just wasn't a good foundation.

But why copper?  Copper is so... common.  Perhaps. But copper is earthy.  Copper is durable.  And even though all metal prices have gone sky-high, copper is relatively inexpensive, readily available, and fun to work with!

This may be an oversimplification, but it's accurate: to work with wire, you must learn to guide it, to finesse it, to coax it.  With copper, you can beat it.  Fold it.  Drill holes in it.  Crush it.  Anneal it.  And beat it again!

My love for wire wrap jewelry grows from my love of the beauty the God puts into the rocks at our feet.  Copper allows more of a focus on form and mastery of the metal itself, rather than relying on its natural beauty.  So I feel my creativity expresses itself more readily than with wire.  I can be impulsive, intricate, and wacky all in the same piece.

I'm still creating with wire.  But there is so much more to learn and to do.  And I'm having a great time!

Working with Copper is a real joy.  Copper allows a jewelry artist real license to let her imagination flow freely.  My copper creations give you the opportunity to be close to me through the details in the copper.  You are wearing something into which I invested the entirety of my skills in order to transform a hunk of metal into something beautiful.  Thank you for wearing a piece of me!
