I've been a wire missionary
for many years!
I found wire.
I became intoxicated with
its design versatility and so
I had to spread the 'word of wire'
by becoming a teacher of the craft!
Being creative is my best therapy in life and I'm
so lucky to have recently been given the opportunity
to 'spread the word of wire' even further ... as
BEADS DIRECT, my favourite
online supplier, have asked me to appear on a series
of programmes on CREATE and CRAFT TV
Using their quality materials and products I will be
able to demonstrate techniques and provide design
inspiration, tips and advice. My first show took place
on July 26th with the amiable presenter, Martyn Parker.
I am following that show with my next, on Tuesday
12th August at 3pm
(so if you remember, set the 'record' button) or,
watch online if you have such a technological
device! Following that, you can catch me on further
programmes on Saturday 30th August and
September 6th with more wire magic on display!
I will have gorgeous jewellery giveaways and share
my 15 years of knowledge. The only drawback (and
perhaps it should be printed under the programme title)
is that wire jewellery making is ... very, very addictive!
But, you guys knew that anyway!
If you missed that first show: "An Introduction to Wire
and Beaded Jewellery", I demonstrated 4 projects out of
the first BOOK
that I wrote 10 years ago
(which is still a perfect starter book!). Here's a taste
of the projects:
CHAIN OF HEARTS:
but I just ran out of time and was unable to show my
'Egyptian Chainmaille' ...
show coming ... ! And there's plenty more -
such as dragonflies, bouquets and starburst
So PLEASE come and join me on 12th August, or on
any of my future programmes and do tell any of your
friends and family to watch - there's inspiration for card
makers and paper crafters too!
Wire is just the perfect medium for embellishing and decorating
... don't you agree?
