The Potential of Craft Wire

Early this past summer I attended my brother's wedding in Puerto Rico. I sat on the plane next to a young woman native to the island who was 'blinged-out' in what look to me like craft-wire jewelry. I told her I loved her necklace and asked her where she got it. She said this kind of jewelry was so popular on the island that it was everywhere. Sure enough while I was in PR, I saw mall shops with walls draped in this kind of jewelry. However, what was more impressive was that my town had a small craft shop with the wire necessary for people to make their own versions of these pieces and it was primarily islanders supplying many of these mall shops with their wares. So I bought a bunch (over-priced compared to what I can get it for here or over the internet) for my cousin who lives on the island and loves to craft and for me. Here is a glimpse of the potential of plain 'ol craft wire: Heart Necklaces by marisol diaz Heart Necklace with Ring by marisol diaz

I sold a set like this for $15.00. I have not listed any of these designs on Etsy yet, so if you're interested in a piece like this contact me!

I am new to wire, but I do have some of this wire, you show. It is so much easier to work with than other wires. I have not tried anything as fancy as what you have done. They are lovely.
