Friday Craft, Update from the Craft Cave

An update from my Craft Cave. This week I’ve been playing with my wire jig with the help of a wonderful book from the library, Inspired Wire by Cynthia Wuller. She has a whole chapter on using a wire jig, with 5 or 6 different ‘recipies’.

I found that I really needed to get a steel block to hammer my pieces against. It’s also theraputic to relieve the stress of the week by pounding some pretty metal pieces!

After using her suggested layouts, I got into experimenting a bit with the jig.  There are so many possibilities!

What new process are you playing with this week?
