Necklaces - from a can of stainless



Before I made kites, I was bending wire.  My dad gave me a spool of his orthodontic wire.  I started by wrapping stones, but soon I was doing my own designs.  I found I could achieve mechanical fluidity by using an absurd number of tiny parts.  This necklace I made about a year or two ago now and Ruth wears it every day, along with another that is similar.  I think it has spoiled her, something I've always been willing to do. This necklace has about 117 wire parts and takes about 5 days of casual evening work to build.
