  • wire butterfly

    Well with the wire that arrived yesterday Ive made a couple of wire wrapped butterfly's and Im really pleased with how they turned out as its the first time Ive made anything out of wire I think Im going to give the pink one to my mother in law for christmas if you want to have a look you'll have to go to my album as I couldnt get the picture on here for some reason when I click on the insert pic icon nothing comes up

    The are both lovely. I am sure your MIL would be please to receive such a lovely piece of wire work. Are you going to have it be a Brooch or a pendant or something else?

      Ive put a chain on the pink one with a toggle clasp the pink one I did first and the silver one ended up a bit bigger than the pink one but I might put that on a chain and keep for myself for when I go out next, Ive started doing some angels today similiar to the butterflies but with a little halo and Im going to put those on chains for my two eldest daughters for christmas not that they are little angels they were a pair of little devils this morning fighting and argueing before they went to school

              My 4 yr old is a girl and 21 month old a boy. She was so easy at his age but he is trouble non-stop. She is now a madame. Good thing they can still melt my heart at times.

                the butterflies are lovely , I'm sure they will love them.

                and sorry girls it doesn't get any better the older they get ! mine are 16,17,18,19 and 21 and they have major scraps , it's very hard to tell anybody off when you have to stand on the bottom step of the stairs to look them in the eye,lol..was so much easier when they were little and the bottom step was the naughty step,lol

                (I remember one bad day when I had 3 on the stairs and 2 facing walls for fighting and bickering ,lol)

                  butterflies

                  Ooh! The butterflies are lovely! They look so good, you must be a natural with wire if that's your first attempt! I had a go once but the shapes didn't turn out like anything recognisable! how did you get the actual butterfly outline so smooth? Did you use a jig?
                  Well done!

                            No I didnt use a jig Im not sure I know what one is, is it a thing with pegs in it. What I did was I drew the butterfly on a piece of paper and then i used that as a guide placing the wire against it so I knew were I needed to bend the wire with my pliers and then wrapped it round the centre part to get to the other side then when I had the basic butterfly shape I then used a thinner wire for wrapping the beads onto it and around the middle to tidy up what Id already wrapped round there, I also used my fingers as guides to get both sides equal and to slightly bend the wire in the wings so that the lines were'nt completely straight I really enjoyed doing it and I cant wait to do more stuff with wire

                              Thank you for all the nice reply's Im really pleased with them and I cant believe how well they turned out they took me just over an hour to do each one and my finger's ached afterwards with pushing on the wire Im going to have to order some more wire I think because I only ordered a small amount and Im nearly out now but it will have to wait while after christmas but I cant wait to make more stuff using wire
