More Twists and Turns / Vintage Cooper

I had so much funny Making Connie's name
I decided to make more names, I tried out another wire this time that I got a while ago to make coils. Its a smaller gauge cooper wire (but doesn't say the exact gauge) but much much much easier to work with, Hence the more intricate turns.
I found that as long as I made the letter tighter the words were less flimsy and they don't change shape.

I think I'll have to give the 16 gauge wire a rest.. I'm getting a blister from bending ><.


Here are the new names I have made: Hope you like it!
Top left is made of the silver coated cooper 16gauge wire
This one is my favorite




This is my inital that I sign off with
Another 16 gauge magenta (red) cooper
Smaller gauge Copper wire
Update on last post
So for Connie's name I wasn't too happy with the nicks in the silver coating from my pliers.
I sanded it down with sandpaper and glazed it to create this Vintage Cooper look

  1. That "Mary" one would look so cute as a logo piece stitched onto my bag. You should start selling your jewelry on http://www.etsy.com/!
