New wire!

Had a fantastic day out at the NEC on Friday. It's always good fun to get together with some friends and see what different things they're all making. And yes, some serious shopping happened. Am I the only person in the world who get excited about having three different thicknesses of the exact same shade of red coated copper wire? Now I can't wait to get stuck in and use some of my new beads and wire! I just need to work out where to keep it all in my newly laid-out studio.

Welcome to twistedwhisker!


I'm Helen and this is twistedwhisker - a showcase for the wirework jewellery I make and some of the techniques I use to make it, together with the random thoughts of my journey into self-employment...

My ultimate aim is to sell my jewellery through my website and at various events throughout the UK, and also provide knowledge and instruction for fledgling wireworkers through online tutorials and (coming soon!) DVDs.

Oh, and I'd love to have a little shop in a little village with my cats and a nice pot of tea always on the go :)

Here's some mood shots of my current work:
