AMAZING!  Artists With a Special Touch!

I love the name of this artist's site...  WildWireArt ... The name alone is enough to picque one's interest!

So, off I went for a visit, and look what I found!  Isn't this the epitome of the shop's name?  With all of its swirls and squiggles, its just wonderful!  The jade owl is surrounded with mixed metal wire.  It comes on a 16 inch leather cord with copper accents.  I'm just in awe of the workmanship in this piece and can't imagine the time it took to create!  The description includes a delightful story of a magical forest, too!

Nancy lives and creates in Southern Illinois.  She claims in her profile attached to her shop on HandmadeArtists that her job is play to her.  That joy is apparent in her finished products.  Her materials are copper, sterling silver and gemstones.  These wonderful earrings are a great example of Nancy's skill with raw wire.  The hoops are hand hammered copper, and even the ear wires are made by the artist.  The blue lapis bear-like charms are so charming!

Nancy's shop is a joy to visit!  Stop by soon and see what I mean!
