At first, I thought this was an ear cuff. That'd be even cooler!

:) That would be cool indeed, but i'm afraid it'd be almost impossible to make such a tiny dragon with this technique :(

This is a really dumb question that I have have been wondering for months about but I never asked as I thought the answer was supposed to be obvious.

The reason you coil wire around a main strand of wire that is giving shape to your jewelry is to strengthen the shape, right?

I am about to pick up jewelry making again though in a way I have not done so before. That is, I would make the beads themselves out of clay. I have a little guidebook that teaches you how to make clay amber, marble, and jade. I will see what I come up with. =) Then maybe I could come up with my own stuff.

I am still saddened that your popularity here is so poor. I would have thought that would be a very popular elite craftsman here on DA. Oh wells, I truly know on my own that you are truly extraordinary at what you do. ^^

there are no dumb questions :)

Coiling has different reasons:
- first of all coiling keeps together the elements of the thicker wire and the beads and stones .. i don't soldering my pieces neither use glue.
- secondly the different coiling techniques are part of the design - they have important decor function.
- and thirdly, they give and extra thickness to the pieces, make them strong and long-lasting :)

I'm looking forward to see your clay-beaded pieces!! it's a great fun, i've read about faux techniques! Unfortunatelly i haven't found transcludent clay anywhere here, and it would be essential for those ones :(

Do you think that my popularity is poor? Hmm.. i don't think that :no: i make wire-wrapped jewelry for only 1.5 years, and i think that nearly 17.000 pageviews is not bad :) maybe i'd be even more popular if i'd upload some nude picts :rofl: (i won't do it). I have great friends here (like you :nod: ) and it's much more important than 1 million pageviews!
